As I say each year, on this day, the 8th of January:
“For those of you who have been following, reading and enjoying each of my seven New Year revelations …. Thank You.
I would like to point out that they are not New Year Resolutions. I don’t make New Year Resolutions anymore. They are my own personal revelations. Epiphanies. Discoveries. In the past decade, I’ve faced some daunting challenges and heart-wrenching events. I’d like to think that I’ve handled them with dignity, compassion, grace, and humor. Always humor. It helps take the edge off.
So, the lessons that these “life tests” have taught me are my “revelations.” As I move forward with my life, I will use them as my guide. Wisdom has to be earned. For me, it’s an ongoing journey, as I’m sure it is for all of you, as well.”
Here’s a synopsis (the numbers have a hyperlink back to each revelation post):
New Year’s Revelation No. 1: Today is Tomorrow
New Year’s Revelation No. 2: Humility is attractive, and Arrogance… not so much
New Year’s Revelation No. 3: Stand by what you say and what you do
New Year’s Revelation No. 4: Be comfortable in your own skin
New Year’s Revelation No. 5: Freedom from Fear
New Year’s Revelation No. 6: Respect Human Dignity… through Kindness
New Year’s Revelation No. 7: Love Thy Neighbor, it’s that simple
And on it goes.
I’m looking forward to whatever 2014 has in store for me.
I wish you all a blessed, healthy and happy 2014 and may your own personal journey bring you deep fulfillment and wisdom… and loads of wonderful opportunity and adventures!
