It’s a new year, it’s a new day, and it’s a new time in my life. It’s time to put the past behind me, let go of the grief and embrace the excitement of what’s here and what’s to come.
I’m determined to put joy and happiness in my life. I’m not naive. I know there are days when the pain will still hurt and I’ll find myself in tears, but I believe with my whole heart that I possess the power to in joy. I allowed grief into my life, because I needed that time to mourn what I’ve lost, what I’ve left behind. If I would have stuffed that pain away, I wouldn’t have healed, only capped something that would explode even more damaging later. But, now is a new season… there was a time to grieve, now it’s time laugh.
I know that my emotions are not like a switch to turn off and on at will, but I also know that what I pour into me is what will come out of me. I allowed pain and grief, and then I let it all out through my words, my blogs, and my stories. I do not allow it any longer. I will now fill my heart, my mind, my soul with joy, happiness, hope and laughter.
I have set many lofty goals for myself this year, and with the same determination I used to fulfill my goals last year, I will endeavor to do the same.
Be happy, people; if not for yourself, then for me. I want to be happy. I want to laugh. I want to sing. Let’s start this New Year off right… with joy.
Till next time,
