I hope that you survived the Festive season intact and that your year has started well.
The beginning of a new year is a good time for looking forward, also a time for reflection.
To reflect on what has taken place over the previous twelve months, what you have achieved, what might have been and, of course, what is still to come from your actions that might not yet have happened.
And the friends and family that have gone from your life. Thank them for everything that they have taught you, the good lessons and the hard ones. They make you who you are today…very special.
2015 was a mixed year for many people, the energies at times felt like you were walking through treacle but that is now in the past.
The coming of the Winter Solstice (the true end to the year) and then the powerful full moon on Christmas Day saw new energies coming to Earth, very positive energies that we can all use for the greater good of us and Mother Earth.
So it is now time to look forward, to meeting new friends, new adventures, to enjoy the journey, to scale new heights and most of all to enjoy yourself.
I leave you with a beautiful poem that really says it all. Allyson has tried to find out who wrote it but to no avail, but I would like to send thanks to the one that did.
Reason, Season, Lifetime
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed or just felt. They have come to assist you through a hard time, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. Then, suddenly, the person disappears from your life. Your need has been met; their work is done.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share or grow or give back. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They give you great joy. Believe it; it is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons—things you must build upon to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all your other relationships.
Think about the people in your life over the years. Whether they were there for a reason, a season or a lifetime, accept them and treasure them for however long they were meant to be part of your life.
And when they are gone, be thankful for the gifts you received from them when they were here—for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
