Well it’s another New Years Eve. I always hear that it has come so fast! And I’m usually the one saying it. It seems like we just had New Years Eve and that I built my vision board for 2012. But here it is again. Last year was not the best Holiday Season, at least for me. It wasn’t special, it wasn’t exciting, I didn’t even put up a tree! This year was different. Amazing how life can change on a dime, isn’t it?
This Christmas was the best Christmas ever, at least that is this writer’s feeling. This past year has brought both real heartache and true love……all in the same year. I guess it’s lucky that way. Balance is important and it is really heaven when we can achieve it amidst a harried and insecure world.
So on the agenda for the holidays was parties with good friends and meeting some new ones; shopping on Christmas Eve to feel the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and of course spending time with my Eric. My tree was the best one ever with butterflies, New Orleans style masks, glitter and every girls favorite, shoe ornaments! All these things made this the best Holiday ever!
On the stressful side this season was Family and work drama. Sometimes it seems this drama will never end and it’s a part of everyday living, but I believe it’s all in how you hande it. You can be aware of all the drama playing out, choose to acknowledge it and engage in the continuing saga, or be aware of it and decide if engaging in it is worth your time, effort and possible aggravation. Obviously some drama needs to be addressed, especially if it effects your work adversely or family happiness. Maybe sincere apologies need to be made, not only to diffuse the drama, but to mend hearts and families. Maybe a clarification of events or of a discussion that took place. Search your heart and soul and hear what your inner voice is telling you. Don’t be afraid to say you were in the wrong either. It’s not about being right or wrong. Life is all about growth and being real. You can’t be real if you can’t even admit you have faults and make mistakes. And if your soul searching reveals some self-discoveries that are less than pleasant, treat yourself and others, for that matter, with gentle thoughts, love and forgiveness. It’s the only way……and besides It’s the New Year! A time for reflection, renewal, and moving past obstacles that keep you from your Fabulous Self!
So my friends, I will close by wishing all of you a safe, drama free, prosperous, loving New Year. Enjoy the reflective New Years Eve in this, the remainder of 2012. The end of the world did not happen and I’m so glad because I have so much to do! Including finishing yet another TV ArtScapes DVD – HanaScapes and MountainScapes!
