A magical new year is beginning.
(If you missed my wishes for you, you can click here to see them 🙂 )
I personally love the ending and beginning of years. It’s the great PAUSE button of life. The moment between what was and what is to come. One can never be here, in this moment, without looking both forward and backwards. It prompts us to look around to see where we’ve been and where we’d like to go next. Both literally and figuratively.
I am heading to Marco Island, Florida in a few days to teach. That’s what I am literally doing 🙂
In my mind I will use both January and February to do my soul work. Happy with where I have been, it’s time to take a deep look at what’s next.
I know you must be feeling the “it’s a new year/ times a wastin’/ life isn’t a dress rehearsal” stirrings within as well.
I love this quote from Andrea Balt:
“What do you want to accomplish? And most importantly, why — what’s your motivation? Be unrealistic. Life itself is unrealistic. Your very existence is as random, impossible and unrealistic as it gets. “
“Only unrealistic people accomplish extraordinary things.”
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~Mark Twain
Here’s to an Awesome 2014 chucked full of Dreamers, Explorers and Unrealistic Peeps 😉
