Last Day of 2012
From the desk of Kristen Lutz, LCMT, MS... On the last day of 2012 take a moment to be grateful for all that you have in your life. Create time today to reflect on all the moments that made an impression on you - whether they are perceived to be happy, sad, exciting or stressful - each served a purpose towards your greater good.
I like to write down my intentions and new adventures I want to invite into my life at the start of each year. Sometimes it's about my career, places I'd like to travel, ways to celebrate my friends and family, or fitness goals. Whatever they are, I make sure to formulate them in the present tense. For example, instead of "I would like to" or "I want" statements, I write, "I have/go/create/make/etc." statements. Our thoughts and words should be chosen wisely as they are more powerful than we can even imagine. So speak as if you have already invited these things into your life.
Wishing you a happy, healthy and intent-ful 2013!
