I'm grateful for a good night's rest and to wake up with renewed commitment and resolve to pursue my dreams. I've heard that you only fail when you stop trying and to an extent I agree but I think there is more to it than that. I believe you can not fail as long as you are living from your heart and following where it takes you. That is not to say that there will not be struggles and that no doors will close but I believe that as long as you are pursuing your heart's desire you will not fail. I'm grateful to believe in a pure, loving, higher power. I'm grateful to know that as long as I am listening and willing to pursue my dreams from the heart that I will not fail. I'm grateful to see so many others achieving their dreams each day! I'm grateful for each step that gets me closer to my goals. And I'm grateful to keep flying and know that even the toughest birds need to rest on a limb every once in a while. And so today I exhale all the worries and fears of last year. I inhale new hope, love, and light for the amazing year to come and I make a renewed commitment not only to my dreams but to myself. We're complex beings and I'm grateful to recognize the need to care for every aspect of myself from my physical body to my dreams to my heart and soul. Today I will take one step to nourish each aspect of myself. What do you need to exhale and release? What do you need to inhale to renew yourself? What dreams can you pursue today, even if it is just one small step to rediscover them? It is a new day and the beginning of a new year. It is a new chapter in your life story... what will you write this year?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
