Open your arms as wide as you can to receive the miracles with your name on them.
-Sarah Ban Breathnach, Simple Abundance
In this new year of wondrous possibilities, I hope that you will remember this quote as I will, friends. When you face those inevitable moments of fear, self-doubt, grief, anger and inertia, open your arms wide and believe that you deserve more. Be good to yourself.
Listening to - the hauntingly beautiful Tiger Mountain Peasant Song
Watching - Out of Africa - A couple of hours lost in breathtaking Africa with Robert Redford seems ideal.
Hoping for - personal and professional growth in this new year
Reading - Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy - my bible for each new year
Eating - the Flirt raspberry and cherry chocolate bar I got for Christmas
Appreciating - the blessings of a warm home and a family to fill it
Baking - vegan Scottish scones
My other suggestion for New Year's Day - take a bath - a long one. Bring a journal and your favourite pen to record your aspirations for 2014. Ideas seem to flow more freely in the bathtub.
What is your wish for this new year?
