As the sun rises and touches the sky this first day of the year, I reflect on the last 12 months. I review in my mind my list of goals and ask myself did I do everything I set out to do? In all that I have accomplished, I ask myself what could I have done differently, what could I have done to be more excellent? What did I learn? My lessons came from the accomplishments and failures, the tears and the happiness, the ups and downs, the joys and heart breaks.
Life is not always what we wish it to be. Take New Years night, I was in the hospital sick and feeling alone. But then I remembered the moment I saw a picture of a seashell on the wall, that I was not alone...I had God with me. And with that I got through what I thought to be a bad experience.
So, what did I learn in the final hours of the 2012? I learned that I can count on God to be there no matter what. He in his wonderful way will find a way for you to get through your experience. That can be by bringing the kindness of a stranger to your path, like the man who helped me in the market last night with the items I needed to help get me well. Or the call from my mother to give me some comforting words and a recipe to help me feel better.
All I'm saying is that when we think it can get no worse...it can. We have to take those moments and make the choice not to go into the darkness. We must stay in His light and He will care for us.
Did I make mistakes in 2012, of course I did, we all did. Did times get bad and go wrong, yes we all went through something we wish we hadn't. It's what we did after the mistake or incident is where the teaching began. I read in a book instead of asking myself "Why is this happening to me?" ask yourself "What is the lesson in this God?". I have found that my stress is lessened when I say this out loud and I can move forward in life taking the value and not the junk. Yes, JUNK....we have to let go of the junk and keep it moving. I know as some of you know that today will soon be in the past.
So, everything that happens will soon pass and be over. Like 2012 is now in the past, we can take the value of the year, the good memories into the New year, but the negativity...the junk...leave it 2012 because there is nothing you can do to change it. All you can do is take a lesson from the experience and should an incident happen again you can make different choices and have smooth sailing in 2013.
Well my wish and prayer for all my family and friends and for all that need a light in the form of a kind word in 2013.... May happiness and love shower on you every day, may light enter your heart when you are feeling down and show you the way. May you be bless on your journeys and accomplish your dreams and goals in life. Awaken every day to a blessing of life and live it to its fullness.
I wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEARS and all the GOOD it has to offer.
