Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2013!

The holidays can be a difficult time for some and a glorious time for others. Some relish in the preparation and excitement of having company. They enjoy cooking, decorating and shopping, constantly being busy going here and there. Others find the holidays a sad, dark and stressful time…perhaps feeling lonely or just completely overwhelmed. They can’t wait until it’s over so they can get back into their normal routine. I have experienced both in my lifetime.

This year I spent the holidays surrounded by LOVE and FRIENDSHIP. We spent time visiting, connecting, laughing, hugging, and playing music (singing). It was awesome!

My heart connections are so important to me. Spending TIME with people, that’s what a life should be built upon. Your relationships with people are your legacy. It’s how you live on after you’ve gone. I still have so many people to see and it won’t happen on this trip but it’s made me realize the importance of TIME and the VALUE of relationships.

Yesterday I spent my last day in 2012 visiting a dear friend I’ve known since I was 16. She was my teacher and now she’s my dear friend. I cuddled my niece and nephew as we watched a movie together. I played games with my friends and toasted to the New Year. These were small, meaningful moments and I loved each and every minute.

This morning I started the New Year by having breakfast with those same friends then I went out for a chilly but invigorating and very FUN run with another dear friend. It’s a great way to start the New Year…exercising in the fresh air with someone you enjoy laughing, chatting and catching up.

Life is about heart connections, life lessons, growth and personal challenges. I don’t know my exact path for the coming year but I do believe that LOVE will be at its core.

May 2013 treat you with kind and loving hands and the choices you make bring you closer to yourSELF ultimately bringing you closer to those you love.

Happy New Year! I am looking forward to another year of sharing, learning, growing, changing, challenging and expressing my thoughts, heart and experiences. Thank YOU for being here.

With a smile,
