Reflection Now

Can you believe it’s been a whole year since last Christmas? Amazing how fast time flies, huh?

During this time of the year, not only do I get to relax and recharge, but it’s also a time of reflect on the past year. I like to ask two questions:

  1. What are you grateful for? What were some gifts, blessings, miracles that came into your life this year? Perhaps it was someone you’ve met, or something you’ve learned. What are you thankful for?
  2. If you had one wish, what would it be? If you could have one wish come true, what do you want most?

These simple questions may seem trivial, but they are the seed for making dreams come true, and for ending the year on a positive note.

Here are some answers from my own little family.

    Freedom of time. To work on any project I choose, while enjoying my financial stability.

  1. Dear Tina,
    I’m eternally grateful for every person and entity that enters my life in ways that enable me to heighten my sensitivities and uplift my soul as well as the spirits of other people.

    My wish for 2008 is to gain deeper insight into the power of love and to empower other people to overcome fear during their own journies.

  2. By the way, that’s a heart-warming photo of you in the snow. I was fortunate to be able to return to Canada to visit my family over the festive season. When you are brought up in cold weather and snow, I find it sincerely rejuvenating to throw myself back into such climates. Since I live in a warmer climate most of the year, I make a point of reconnecting back with my roots because it keeps me in touch with my soul.
