Thought for the day…..perhaps the NEW YEAR !!

Well, here we are …. December 31st, 2011 ….. winding down the last few hours of this year.  I wonder where did the time go?  It has been a crazy year for me, Alvin and my family.  Upon reflection, the events of this past year have made through conversations; me realize that yes in fact, I do have something worthwhile to write, and have published into a book.  It has been a dream on mine as you all know …. to be a published writer in my life-time.  I have been writing since I was a child.  There has been many a poem, short story, lyrics for songs and starts to novels …. more than I can say.  But it has been this last year ….. that has really awaken the “writer” in me and made me realize that yes, I have the stuff that is required to be an author.  I love words and love putting them together in whatever form may “hit” me at whatever time.  So with the love and support of family and friends I boldly enter my next chapter …… 2012 will be my biggest and best year ever.  Forgive all the “I’s” ….. but I know it to be true and I believe it to be true….. this is MY YEAR ….. 2012.  I am going to make all of my dreams come true.

Instead of making New Year’s Resolutions ….. I am going to make a few statements, and work on them throughout the year.

1.  Every week I shall endeavour to go though a drawer, box or cupboard …. the HOUSE, and make certain that each and every single item in my house is something that I will continue to use for the next year.  If an item is not being used … it will be given to someone who would value it , sold or recycled.  A portion of any sales will be given to charity.

2.  I will walk with Alvin at least six nights each week.  (every night I will give Alvin a belly rub as has become our nightly ritual)

3.  I shall begin and finish my first book during this year being 2012.

4.  I shall be the best person that I could ever be ….

5.  I shall continue to be a positive energy …. a beaming light …… a grateful human being to all my family and friends and to all that I encounter ….. whether two or four-legged (or perhaps one with a fin)……

6.  I shall remember to laugh each day.

7.  I shall smile for no apparent reason.

8.  That is all …. I was going to write ten things but have decided that seven is enough.

I hope that love, joy, laughter, abundance, perfect health and wealth rain down upon you this day and for the coming year.

May you treasure the moments with yourself and loved ones.

May you smile for no reason and laugh till it hurts.

May you continue to be the best you.

May all your yesterdays highlight your todays, and bring promise to tomorrow.

HAPPY NEW YEAR ….. ONE AND ALL.

Special Hello to:  my family and friends who I could not have sustained any kind of “sanity” this past year….. details to follow in my book ……

Always, Carol
