Dwell on the beauty of life.
Watch the stars,
and see yourself running with them.
―Marcus Aurelius, shared by Amy in Brookfield, WI
May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are
exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities
that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones
and allow your soul the freedom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
-variation on the Prayer of St. Theresa, shared by Emily in Cheyenne, WY
As 2014 winds down its part of your journey and prepares to pass the baton to 2015, I invite you to take a few moments in the next few days to catch your breath and revisit the experiences that helped you enjoy the year as well as those that helped you grow.
Soon enough it will be time to chart a new course for the new year; you’ll make wiser decisions about where you’re headed if you first glance back at where you’ve been.
I’ll see you next year!
