A New Years Day Reflection

Morning every one and a Happy New Year to you, hope you are all well.  I have been thinking about doing a little 2013 reflections piece for a few weeks and I cannot think of a more appropriate day than the first day of a brand new year.  For those of you who know me well I am not a fan of New Year, my mood seems to drop really low but actually by the time the bells started ringing at midnight I was in quite a chirpy and positive place last, which was surprising since 48 hours earlier I had been feeling particularly sad but then again I laughed a lot last night, never underestimate the power of laughter, it is good medicine.

I noticed on Facebook that they do little year reviews and I had to laugh at my first post of 2013, it said..

“There isn’t any point in lying, I’m no fan of new year, never really have been, I prefer to hibernate! In fact I was more excited when it was the end of the Mayan calendar! 2012 was a good year , so many good things happened, learnt a lot, lots of twists and turns, lots of new people, numerous possibilities to consider. Even though I’m in a foul mood I am really excited about 2013 because I reckon the twists and turns will be even bigger, the journey gets more exciting from now on…. Happy New Year x”

Never have there been truer words said, 2013 did have lots of twists and turns, the journey was more exciting and I believe it was a result of just going with the flow, learning not to control every aspect and inch of my life. Sure I had a list of things that I wanted to do which I did but there were lots of things that happened that were never on the list on the 1st January 2013.

Here are some of the things that happened that were never in the plan at the beginning of last year,

I started the love your self better blog, I started the process mid January and posted my first official post on February 3rd,

Visited the Isle of Skye to see my friends

Two kittens moved in

Started to volunteer work at a hospice

Completed my first degree reiki for a second time

Started “its just bout beads blog”

Visited Barcelona

Some of the things that happened that were in the plan

Successfully obtained a Diploma in Body Massage

Changed employers

Completed my apprenticeship to teach 1st Degree reiki

Spent more time being more creative

Some of the lessons I learnt in 2013

I am far too harsh on myself

I am a guilty of self sabotaging a result of irrational fears

Learnt to face my fears head on

To just be me

Learnt to love the life I have lived

Learnt to love myself better

Learnt everything has its own place in time

To slow down and enjoy what I am doing

Learnt to be at peace with myself

Relationships are hard but if you work at them the better they become

The more I allow myself to be creative the happier I am

Learnt to let go and enjoy the journey, what will be will be

So what happens now….

I have no idea, I do not have a list of things I want to do, there are things in my life that I would like to do more of, I guess its up to 2014, I will just go with the flow

Happy New Year, Lots of Love
