Last night I turned off my alarm and managed to sleep in until 5:00. Considering I am usually up at 2:00, this was something! I have my fairy lights on as well as my salt lamp. I had a lovely breakfast of oatmeal and a mocha latte. I have Yanni playing softly in the background and I am so content, happy, and at peace. Today I rest, relax, explore all my options, meditate, nap and just be. No plans, no agenda, no "must do or should do. "
I have felt a huge shift coming for several weeks and the fact that it is coinciding with my birthday seems to me, to be more than coincidental. I am so much more the "me" I thought I lost 7 years ago. I am more positive, happy, excited, and determined. Work is going better since the shift began and I am more aware of all the blessings in my life. It feels as if I am in a perpetual state of gratitude and it feels so good! (Note: I have always counted my blessings and tried to live in an attitude of gratitude, but in the past, it was sometimes difficult to keep it on the front burner)
I have felt the need to actually make goals and plans for the coming year...to physically, mentally, and emotionally commit to these goals. I have also noticed that I am not as inclined to spend hours watching TV and I am spending a little less time online as well.
Tomorrow is my New Year's Eve and I am happily looking forward it. Depending on the weather I may go out and about tomorrow (we are expecting rain all day tomorrow as well), if not I will work some more on my goals, plans and dreams, and watch a little TV.(key word "Little." *LOL*)
So my goals in a nutshell:
Devote myself to developing my Spirituality
Obtain a certified copy of my birthday certificate and finally get my passport
Get healthy...I mean Really. Get . Healthy!
Declutter and organize...I need to clear out the stagnant and useless energy of stuff that no longer serves me! Next time I move, I want it to be (relatively) painless
Find a volunteer opportunity that sings to my heart and soul!
I am so excited about this year. This weekend is going to be a fabulous beginning. Once I have put pen to paper and written out my goal and the steps I need to take to fulfil them, Sunday (depending on the rain) or more likely, Monday I will make my yearly birthday visit to the Goddess Temple and dedicate myself to living my life and working towards fulfillment of my goals, so that next year at this time, I can look back with joy and gratitude for the wonderful year I had, however it works out.
In between all this life planning stuff...I think I am going to see the Titanic exhibit at the Luxor, maybe take in a couple of movies and treat myself to a birthday brunch...or maybe dinner at my favorite Irish Pub. Whatever I end up doing, I know this is going to be a magical weekend and I am very much looking forward to what it has in store!
