Out with the old; in with the new. Fresh starts. New beginnings. Second chances. The calendar date shall change to the year 2016. What is it about the New Year that causes new expectations? Starting over gives everyone a chance to begin once more.
Out with the old; in with the new: Getting rid of things that didn’t work and trying something new is a good idea. Who needs stress and why keep something around that doesn’t function properly or at all? As we look to the future, finding ways about enhancing life, making it easier, more efficient can alleviate unnecessary stress. Old, non-functioning things take up space and costs money. New doesn’t have to be expensive – it just needs to work effectively!
Fresh starts: Change your life; change your attitude. Why start fresh? Nobody wants to put on an air of dirty laundry. There’s something good about the way fresh smells and tells others about you. Being fresh may be a communicator sending messages to the receiver. One of the biggest roadblocks in life are stress, attitude, and fear. Obstacles have a distinct odor that tends to ward off the very people you need to make your life more fulfilling. People get offended easily and they don’t smell and tell. It’s all about discovery and having the courage to change the things you can.
New beginnings: Every time a new born baby cries, someone smiles; a parent wants to pick them up to bring comfort and joy. But when the baby grows up and turns into an adult, that crying gets old and change is necessary. There comes a time in everyone’s life when the crying, whining, jealousy, complaining, and criticism must come to a screeching halt! The only one who can pick you up, is you! New beginnings prompts growth and opportunity. Positive attitude puts one on the journey to personal success.
Second chances: Celebrating the New Year is getting a second chance. It’s an invitation to change your life and claim more to the gifts of happiness. When the heart is open and the mind is receptive to change you’re in relationship with people who want to keep you in their life, do business with you, and support you in all your endeavors. The most important person you need to live with is you! To live a life of an incredible abundance and fulfilling life is something worth striving for. The New Year is an opportunity for fresh starts, new beginnings and second chances.
Happy New Year!!!
