10 Things to do in 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

And blessings to you and yours. I sincerely wish you the best year of your life yet! ❤

Below is a list of the 10 things I’m going to do this year…I hope you consider them as well 🙂

The angel drawing below is one I’m currently working on. I hope to not only finish it, but also get it on canvas, and painted too! My niece said I should name it sun portal, and a  friend named him Aaron, but since he’s an angel I had to add the -iel at the end, so he’s been named Aaroniel Guardian of the Sun Portal!

😀

Ten things to do in 2017:

1. Take it a day at a time.

You don’t have to know what you’re doing the next day or even the next hour. I’ve learned that the more you think in the future, the shorter the day seems and the months fly past you and you’re left feeling discontent and unsatisfied. It’s almost like everything has been in a blur, and you find yourself saying, “the year went by so fast”, even though you haven’t accomplished much. So do everything in the moment of ‘now’, and cherish each minute like it’s the last minute you have.

2. Let it go.

You know nothing is going to change, because you can’t change people unless they truly want to and you can’t change the past either, and the sooner you realize this, you will spend more time being happy than in a constant battle with your mind and your heart. They need to rest too.

3. Take risks.

If you never take any, the moment that turned out for the worst could have turned out for the best. This works vice-versa as well, but either way, you will learn from these experiences. You won’t forget how rapidly your heart was beating in these moments and how electric you felt. It will be worth it in the end, trust me.

4. Call up that person that you didn’t spend enough time getting to know, simply because you were too distracted with somebody else or just didn’t feel like you’d become something more than acquaintances. Greet strangers and embrace the idea of diversity. Ask questions about different cultures, morals, ideas, beliefs; educate yourself as much as you can.

5. Go ahead and wear that outfit you keep telling yourself that it doesn’t look good on you.

You bought it because you liked it, yes? So, show it to the whole damn world. If you do it with a smile and confidently squared shoulders—even better. You are beautiful.

6. Instead of procrastinating and wallowing in self-pity, get up and do something.

Sitting around is not going to do much but make you feel horrible, and you’ll create scenarios that may not even exist or be as big in your head that will cause matters to become worse. You want this to be your year of explosive progress? Set goals and strive to achieve them. You want to look back at the end of the year and say, “I did good”.

7. Spend more time with your family or friends.

Build a support system so strong, that you will never feel lonely. In fact, this support system will lead you to feeling content even when you are alone, because you won’t feel the constant need to either be with someone or have somebody who loves you, because you know you’ll have people who love you and the more love you surround yourself with, the easier it becomes to love yourself too.

8. Be kind always and be angry when you need to be.

Stand up for the ideas that you believe in and don’t back down from them just because you have a different opinion. Learn to love the sound of your voice when it bounces off the walls of a classroom full of people, because your voice has the power to change a million minds. Remember, you are allowed to feel whatever it is you feel.

9. Go on more road trips or just take a few minutes to be outside by yourself.

Inhale and exhale the air around you. Watch the stars, the sunset, the sunrise, the birds flying in the sky, the cars passing by. Walk in the rain sometimes without an umbrella, instead of running. Let the sunlight soak your skin more often. God, isn’t the world itself beautiful?

10. Be faithful.

This is the year you hoped to be better. Don’t let anything stop you from achieving that, because you are limitless as long as you believe yourself to be.

Brighten Your Day… Notes from Neale Donald Walsch

I just had to share this wonderful note from Neale Donald Walsch (the author of Conversations with God), it will surely brighten your day, as it did for me. He truly has a gift for sharing simple messages that mean so much.

Notes from Neale…


My dear friends…
Let’s explore something really fascinating this week. Let’s look at the place in the universe in which God resides; the location in which God exists.
Many people believe that God is everywhere, but do not believe that God resides inside of them. They may say this out of humility, but actually it is the height of arrogance to imagine that God exists everywhere in the Universe except in you.
That would make your body, mind, and soul pretty exclusive real estate.
If we accept, on the other hand, what even traditional religions say: that God is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the All-In-All, then we must necessarily conclude that God exists in us.
This is a big conclusion, because if it is accurate (and it is), we come upon a most intriguing and significant inquiry: Where in us does God exist? In our little finger? In our big toe? In our brain? In our heart? In our soul? (Do we even have a soul?) (Yes.)
The answer: if God really is the All-In-All, the Alpha and the Omega, than there can be nowhere in us that God is not. In fact, there is nowhere in anything that God is not. God is everywhere, and is made manifest in everything.
This brings us back to the Unspoken Truth. If God is everywhere in you, if there is nowhere in you that God is not, then God is you.
And everything else.
Once you understand this, you cannot imagine that life is about “you” ever again. Not in the sense of “you” having to be, do, or have anything in particular in order to be happy. Not in the sense of you “needing” anything, or requiring anything, in order to survive.
Living in this truth makes it extremely difficult to be “caught up” in the minor daily “dramas” of life as it is currently lived by most people on the earth, and provides a fresh perspective on the really major tragedies and turmoil of our species.
For 50 years I was living a case of mistaken identity. I thought I was separate from God. Now I know that this is not true, and that God and I are One. This does not mean that “I am God” in the arrogant sense of those words. This means that “I am what God is, and God is what I am.” This means that I truly have been made in the image and likeness of God!
And so have you.
On a strictly personal level, this means that you have no need for anything at all, and so you can drop all of your personal day-to-day “dramas” right now. Since you are everything you could ever imagine that you need or desire, what is there to be agitated about?
You desire love? You are love. You desire abundance? You are abundance. You desire compassion, forgiveness, understanding? You are compassion, forgiveness, understanding.
You may not experience that you are these things if you have been living a case of mistaken identity, yet the fastest way to experience that you are these things is to be these things. And the fastest way to experience yourself being these things is to give these things away. For it is in the giving that you realize and multiply the having, and it is in the having that you experience and expand the being, and it is in the being that you embrace and express the knowing of Who You Are-and this is the purpose of all of life.
These are understandings that, once truly embraced, can alter your experience of life forever.

Love and Hugs,

Neale
