As I prepare for a night of music and dancing with some of my favorite people, I feel I must take pause for one final moment of self reflection this year. There are only hours left in this year and it’s as if the past year is flashing before my eyes.
My heart swells at the amount of joy in my heart, laughter in my breath and gratitude in my soul. Tears have been brimming in my eyes throughout the day, recalling all of the wonderful people and life lessons that have come and gone. I have learned so very much this year, but one of the things that I am most grateful to have learned is to remove the idea of “bad” and “good” and simply take what happens as a lesson. It makes letting go so much easier when you can take your lesson, say thank you, and move forward. When you can remove ego and simply enjoy your moment rather than feel as if you won by your accomplishments. Finding the space to live purely within the moment is the greatest gift. One that I will continue to work on moving in to 2013.
This is going to be an amazing year. I know this. I feel this. I trust this. Awe and wonder, beautiful and bountiful change, lie around every corner this year. Awaken the magic!
To you and yours: enjoy this moment and each-other.
