It’s very neat, how we generally feel optimistic at the beginning of a new year. We tend to feel more hopeful, more capable, more sure.
On this New Year’s beginning days, you can enjoy this optimism and feelings of possibility.
No matter how crazy last year may have seemed, you can bask in being here to enjoy this new year. You are here for important reasons!
KNOW you are in a beautiful, wonderful world that needs you. Replace any doubts with gratitude. (Remember, this is your optimistic time!)
Remember to choose good thoughts. Picture exactly what you want to achieve and be. Then, take actions that move you toward those goals. You can achieve whatever you desire. Believe it and see yourself having achieved it.
“Not only do you become what you think about, but the world also becomes what you think about. Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives. Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light.”
~ Wayne Dyer
You are special. You are incredible, loved, and eternal. “Perhaps the most exciting realization in the world, is finally understanding that living the life of your dreams is entirely up to YOU…”
This is also about the scariest realization! —- UNTIL you realize it includes ‘me’. “
~ The Universe (Mike Dooley)
And when you encounter someone who is challenging to you? Remember, ”Everyone is acting from his own level of consciousness. This is all we can ask of ourselves or anyone else. However hurtful someone is, he is doing the best he can, given the limits of his consciousness.
~ Deepak Chopra
And yet, “Everything is already perfect and complete.”
~ David Hawkins
In time we will understand. And in the meantime, be the incredible person you are, for the world to become more like you, and remember how much you are needed!
