I am happy. Things are looking up and I am optimistic about just about everything.
It may be that the last three weeks I have been celebrating with family and loved ones as I shared in planning birthday treats and surprises. I may still be on a cake and sugar high. I simply feel amazing. In all seriousness, I believe that in the last few weeks of giving, celebrating others and tuning into only the best aspects of my life, that I have experienced a shift in my consciousness.
We are heading towards the end of 2016 and this has placed me in a celebratory mode. I am looking forward to Christmas. All around me, department stores and shopping plazas are decked out in the vibrant green, red and gold of Christmas. Even the weather has changed, in Jamaica, it is so cool, perfect weather, I am loving the Christmas breeze. I don’t want this feeling to just be a passing mood. I want this feeling of goodness, joy, celebration and happiness to grow and become the very central energy of my life.
In the midst of the feel good vibrations, nearing the end of the year, 41 days to be more precise, I am also reflecting. The major life change for me this year was starting a new job. Other major life events that I had hoped to happen in 2016 did not happen. However, other small victories make me hopeful. I am paying off my credit card. I have gone a far way in learning how to budget and stick with it. I have been eating healthier (there was a small detour for my birthday, my boyfriends’ birthday, my cousin’s birthday and I am sure I will be stuffing myself this Christmas) and I now exercise frequently.
The main message I want to share with you all today and reaffirm to myself is that this life is good. It can be good. Look for the very best aspects in life, appreciate them, offer your gratitude and enjoy what life has to offer. We are already on our way.
