It's the last day of 2014! The thirty first of December is one of my favorite days of the year. Not only is it a great time for reflection but it is a great time for forgiveness and love. There is no need to carry old wounds or grudges into a beautiful new year. Today is the perfect day for "I'm sorry" and "I forgive you" as we make room in our hearts for all the love 2015 will bring. It's like trading planes halfway to your destination. You do not take any extra baggage that is not yours. You do not take the trash of what you ate with you beyond the trashcan at the door. So why would we carry emotional baggage through the doorway of a new year? I'm grateful to forgive those I love. I'm grateful to take the sometimes harder step and forgive myself for the mistakes I made during this year. I'm grateful to release my judgments and start fresh. I'm grateful to feel my heart opening to the new opportunities and beginnings. I'm grateful to set the intention for a great 2015. Every day is the opportunity for a fresh start; a new beginning. And yet there is special significance in it also being the last new day of the year. How would you like to spend the last day of 2014? Is there someone you are wanting to forgive? Can you embrace them and yourself knowing we are all doing our best? May today bring loving closure to old wounds. May today be filled with beautiful release to make room for all the good of 2015. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
