You are probably still caught up in Christmas activity with less than a week until the day of celebration. At the same time, I wonder if you’re yearning to take some time to reflect on the year past and look forward to the year ahead. Here’s a couple of fun facts–
We tend to journey inward during the winter months, literally and metaphorically. Many of you like to curl up with a book. Some of you enjoy losing yourselves in movies. Jigsaw puzzles have their biggest sales during winter.
As you look forward to your plans for the new year, 2022, I hope your plans include decisions that propel you to expand and grow personally. I dug up an idea and a quote from my past women’s groups that I hope bring you inspiration—
Richard Bach, best known for writing Jonathon Livingston Seagull, wrote many other inspirational books. In his book, Illusions, he talked about our REAL SELF being our spiritual self. He cautions us not to turn away from possible future goals until we’re sure that they have no lessons to offer us and he reminds us that we are FREE to change our minds and choose different goals, different futures. If you are in the mood for philosophical books, Richard Bach is your author.
HERE’S A QUOTE with a similar idea from the Conversations with God trilogy by Neale Donald Walsch–
“Stop trying to figure out what is ‘best’ for you (how you can win the most, lose the least, get what you want) and start going with what feels like WHO YOU ARE.”
A reminder that my books, Think Your Way to Happiness: Strategies for an Enjoyable, Meaningful Life and Silent Decision: Awareness out of Tragedy are available in eBook and paperback at www.amazon.com.
I wonder how many of you are into the Wheel of Time series on Prime Video?? If you liked Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, you will probably enjoy this medieval setting, good vs. evil fantasy series.
I hope that these last days of the year bring you gifts, not necessarily material, and surprises.
Take care, Laurie
