2009 was divine...2010 let it begin
On the solstice, I made a point of creating a list of all the things I wished to leave behind as we entered the new year. I took each item on my list and wrote it on a piece of paper and burned it. Then I created a list of all the things I wished would come to me in the new year. I wrote those on paper and burned them as well. A simple but powerful and empowering act.
Tonight as we celebrated the new calendar year, we took turns saying what we were grateful for from the last year. Jude said, "I'm thankful I have pineapple for my pizza." And from that simple gratitude, I recognized the need to stay present and ever mindful of even the littlest things that bless us as we journey through the year to come. 2009 was divine. 2010...let it begin. I am willing to be pleasantly surprised one moment at a time.
blessings to you all!
