According to information from a well versed friend a period of renewal. To each the new year means something different and to each the new year is welcome in different ways, according to beliefs, to culture, to society and personal taste. Whatever it means, it is usually welcome as a time for celebration. Congratulations, you made it this far. It is a continuation of time and events but it is always also the beginning of a new calendar year. It is a monumental marker to time and decisions to be made.
You do not have to wait 365 days to make a resolution but it is a good time for resolutions, renewal and or new beginnings. It is a good time to look forward to the future. Many resolutions will be made and many will be broken. That in itself is a tradition but some will make resolutions and keep them. Some resolutions are hard to keep and some so simple that they can be almost as natural as waking up in the morning.
The simple resolutions that I am referring to are related to a simple state of mind, a simple thought that has nothing to do with physical cravings but are designed to enhance you as a spiritual being having a human experience.It is like planting a seed, giving the seed water and watching the seed transform itself into a beautiful flower.
If you have not yet figured where I am going with this thought ..it is called moving closer towards positivity.The resolution is to be positive through the new year and the days that lie ahead. Plant the thoughts and you will see the thoughts grow from inside out to enhance who you are. Make a resolution to be positive and see what it does for you, if you allow the thought to grow into reality.Like anything else it might be easier said than done, but it is also said that practice makes perfect.
Life happens and life will happen along the way but it is not what happens to you along the way that matters so much as to how you react to each situation. If you can learn to react to most situations in a positive manner, you will be amazed with the results. If you fight negativity with negativity you will find that you feed negativity and the parts of you that are beautiful gets affected by the negativity.
The flower that is positivity grows larger and more magnificent, if you allow it to. The magnificence of positivity will shield you from a lot of crap and BS that others and life will throw your way.
The thought that is positivity will grow within you to become like a force field that bounces off negativity. If you can create enough beautiful thoughts in your mind, it becomes much more difficult for the negativity of others, of places and events to mow you down. If you can make it to a high level of positivity then you put on the amour of God and become surrounded by a light that becomes almost impossible for negativity to breach.
A new year, a new lease to life and a new way of thinking. An opportunity for renewal and for second chances. Forget about making resolutions, if you know in your heart and mind that you are not going to keep them. That is where struggle lies and the feeling of failure arises.
Think positive, be positive and you will find the platform that you need to meet other struggles and to see a beautiful year unfold.
