Happy New Year

Happy New Year

The snow is falling, Christmas is over, and the New Year has arrived with a clean slate for me to fill. At times, I feel overwhelmed with my desire to achieve the many things I wish to accomplish this year, but with that long list comes a reminder to slow down and embrace each day with gratefulness for what I have already accomplished. Choose wisely, I tell myself, for I am always ambitious to get things done. My grandson has become my master teacher when it comes to what is important and I have relearned with him the art of play. How easily he can shut out what he knows he should do for the unexpected and joyful moment of play. I can be tired from my busy schedule with the hope of finishing whatever I am in the middle of when I hear, “I need to tell you something, Grandma.” Those words always make me smile, and I take a deep breath to prepare myself for what is to come. Within minutes I am lost in his imagination and the love he shows me for participating in his adventure.

As the New Year begins with the promise of change and the unknown, I am more aware now than ever of a favorite quote from Buddha.

“What you think, you become.

What your feel, you attract.

What you imagine, you create.”

May you think, feel, and imagine in satisfying, productive, and creative ways, and may the New Year fill your days with warm moments and cherished memories.
