Today is the Day - By Linda Sage
Waking up every morning and looking out to see the sun shining, still sends a tingle through me, the odd grey day makes me relish the others even more. It is a known fact that sunshine lifts your spirits and helps your system work well. But how quickly the days, turn into weeks, then months and hey yes another year gone!!!! I am sure that they are speeding up, or maybe it is that I am appreciating time more now.
The young get bored and long to be teenagers, the teenagers long to be adults (but without the responsibilities that go along with it!!), then when we are adults we want to be young and free once again….funny old thing life!!!
Leaving yet another year behind, often makes us reflect on what we have achieved in that time, what we want for the coming year or so. Maybe our views of what has happened and how we have coped with it, does not always coincide with those around us. In my view 2008 for me was traumatic in many ways, with two very sad with bereavements (along with all the red tape and paperwork), a sour romance (though short lived), a proposal of marriage (totally unexpected and definitely not accepted), expansion of my business (on several levels and various premises), the turmoil of the house of my dreams splitting in two and what to do about it, the garden wall falling down and the pool with a major leak. As well as a demanding teenager who was struggling to come to terms with her own losses, my life seemed to be packed with ongoing battles. Even with my positive attitude, which if I may so myself, thought I had done pretty well coming out the other side with my sanity in tact (ok that is open to discussion).
Recently I was having a coffee with a very good friend who has been with me and supportive throughout this year, she said in conversation “this year has been good one for you”. Nearly falling off of my seat, I asked her if she had been on the same planet as I had!!!! But she continued by saying, yes but look where I was as a person in January 08 and look where I am and who I am now. This made me sit back and think, I am feeling better in me, I have also reopened an important friendship, I have let my daughter become her own person, designed my own home and watching as it rises like a phoenix, just as that is near to completion I started work with new business premises!!! Seen a few new people come into my life that have enhanced it in several ways, have received more flowers than in any previous year of my life (the florist is pleased about this) Got involved is causes that need help and feel a lot stronger emotionally and physically (that is all to do with the Wicked Trainer, that dreams up ways to torture me, into a new shape). A great romance and working more with Spirit (neither were even a glimmer in the back of my mind 12 months ago) Have great friends and family around me and lots of new goals and enthusiasm for the coming year, so yes she was right, the past 12 months could be seen as a “Good Year” on reflection. It just takes a slightly different view for you to be able to see a better picture sometimes.
So hey, what will we all be saying about our lives in the middle of 2011?
