Reflecting on 2016


Looking back on this year it’s about reflecting and realizing what you have accomplished this year.

For some this has been a year in finding themselves with joy, getting that great job, a new birth in the family or finding love. For other’s it has been a difficult year filled with layoffs of jobs, diagnosed with illness, ending relationships or losing a loved one. What I have come to realize in my life is through a tragedy or a loss, you make a connection from within, to realize what the hidden strength you have had all along.

Tragedy puts everything into perspective and teaches us what truly is important, your spirit is awakened and puts us in a direction to where we are meant to go that earlier we wouldn’t have had the courage to do so.

2016 has been a year of connections, connecting of one’s self and where it will take us, how we apply our losses and turn them into a positive. As the old saying goes….” it’s not what’s given to us but how we handle it”.

As this year ends, for many of us this year is about conditioning us and taking us in the direction to what Is important. What I have come to learn is never taking anything for granted even the simple things, I remind myself every day to be grateful for what I do have.

As 2017 is approaching, for most of us we don’t know what lies ahead but what we do know is live within the moment, love with your heart and that love is truly stronger than hate. Every person that comes into our life is a gift or a lesson, allowing yourself to be open to what comes your way, starting everything with a positive instead of a negative. Knowing your limits and your boundaries and to give yourself a gift of loving thy self.

Wishing all of you an abundance of love, health, happiness and positive thoughts throughout this new year.

Much love and cheers to all!  Susan
