New Year’s is usually a time of reflection. Use your time of reflection as a way for you to continue forward in your journey.
There may be things that still trouble you. There may be a need for grieving and forgiveness. Be mindful of these, but don’t let them weigh you down. Do the work necessary to help you move on.
Celebrate your awareness of what you need to do. Too many times we allow our awareness of our struggles to become bondage. Realize that your awareness gives you a new perspective.
Realize that your circumstances have changed. Realize that you have changed. Begin by letting go of more of the old. Bring with you the best from the past and create a new beginning using prayer and meditation to guide you.
“See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare.” Isaiah 42:9
Blessings in 2015!
