It's that time of year that I begin working on my vision board for the coming year and prepping my vision for how I want my life and business to look. As I reflect back and look at the things on my vision board from last year, it is interesting to see which have reached fruition and which are still yet to manifest. I look at what my fiancé and I put on our joint board and see how it is coming together for us. And as I reflect back at the year, I have realized that this may be the best year of my life. I'm so blessed with great family and friends. I'm grateful for two healthy dogs. I'm grateful for my Subaru that gets me everywhere I need to go. I'm grateful for this beautiful home and a loving fiancé. I'm grateful for all I have learned about myself this year. I could go on and on but the point is, this was a pretty great year. And the truth is, the year before was pretty fantastic as well. Yes there were bumps and bruises along the way but overall it has been great. I can't help but think of all the people I have heard talk about their best years as being in the past. The best year of your life, does not have to happen only once. It simply means it is the best one yet, and every year could become the new best year if you set the intention. Now I'm not saying there won't be some struggles or even heart-breaking events. The loss of a loved one for example, may not be overcome within the year to make that the best year. But the best years can begin again, when you are ready. So how do you make each year the best year of your life? By practicing gratitude, conscious and positive living, and loving the world around you. So what is your intention for 2015? Would you like to make it the best year of your life? What do you want to see happen? Create a vision board, share gratitude, and take that step toward the best year of your life. You deserve it! Have a beautiful day. May you find peace with the year that has passed and find hope in the year to come.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
