A new year is upon us, which means another has come and gone. My tradition is to reflect upon the passing year-- the good, the bad, and the in between. Fortunately, my year had more good than bad. Although I did have a couple crises, I managed to get through them unscathed and even acquired some valuable lessons, which is what they’re all about anyway, so upon deliberation, they were worthwhile, even if I didn’t think so at the time.
My path of enlightenment (I know, not very original) has been going on for some time now, but I really advanced in 2010. I connected with my inner-self and comprehend ME more than ever, which has given me a more potent perception. I have a new awareness of others, my surroundings, and minor things, like what’s going on in the background of TV shows and movies—it’s actually quite amazing. This new found ability has me appreciating the small things so much more, and I find myself reflecting on issues I never thought of, and I believe it will help my expanding enlightenment even more.
I will continue on my “path”, just as I will continue blogging. I know my blog posts were a bit sluggish this past year, however, I don’t believe in beating myself up over it, because blogging, to me, has always been about writing, first and foremost, and if I happen to change a few minds along the way—great. However, my goal has always been, and still is, to express myself and connect with others—read their thoughts and views, and maybe even learn a thing or two. (I never imagined I’d make friends, but I have, so I received an added bonus!) I’ll continue to post when I want, how I want, and about topics that please me, and I’ll do it all in the same courteous manner I’ve displayed for the last three years. My motto, as you know, is, “we can disagree with dignity”, and I have never been given a good enough reason to believe otherwise.
In ending, I’m looking forward to this New Year since it’s another to LIVE and EXPERIENCE, therefore it’s a blessing. I hope everyone had a happy new year’s eve and it’s my fondest desire that you all have a happy, prosperous, and healthy 2o11--one where you will be surrounded with love from family and friends. May you find YOUR path of enlightenment and expand your horizons by moving from the past into the present where you will find a bright, enriching future.
Happy New Year!
