Welcome 2013

 Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you. - Aldous Huxley.

These past couple of months have brought on awareness and growth.  Many years ago a friend once told me "Things happen for a reason".  I've spent my years trying to figure out why things happened the way they did.  Trying to come up with answers and scenarios in which I could have dealt with situations a bit differently.

I've surrendered.  I've let it go.  Why things happen is not up to me to answer.  What I can do is move forward with love. I have learned to surrender to the Universe, give it to God.   In doing so I have been reintroduced to my soul again.  I lost direction but I didn't lose myself completely.  Sometimes in life you come to a fork in the road.  A decision that must be made.  Do I choose left or right unsure of the outcome of either path. I chose the path that felt most authentic and have found an inner peace that words cannot describe. 

I will bring in this new year with excitement and an experience that has brought forth growth.  I will focus on whats always been important to me.  I made many promises to myself this year.  What is it that you promised for yourself this year?  Write it down.  Post it somewhere to remind you that you made a promise to yourself, a promise that should never be broken. 

So say goodbye to 2012 and be grateful for the experiences even if at that past moment tears were shed and hearts were broken.  Welcome 2013.  So glad you have arrived.  A personal prayer to everyone of you that read my post.  May you be blessed.  Be open to receive all that is to come and you will see and feel miracles.
