2016 has come and gone. Take a minute to reflect upon the best moments you’ve had last year. The loved ones who have touched your heart, the opportunities that have lifted you up, and the experiences that have changed your life. Let them fill your heart with joy and be grateful for them. Lock those memories in your heart and carry them with you, forward into the new year. Let the most moving and heart filled moments of last year become part of who you are and what you will strive to become. Let them fill you with hope and joy and excitement that the future can only get better and the best is still left to come.
Take a minute to think about the worst moments you’ve had last year… the mistakes you’ve made, the loved ones you’ve hurt or let down, the regrets you have and the failures you’ve endured. Think about the times your heart has broken, the times your tears have fallen, and the pain you have endured. Reflect upon what you’ve learned from those moments, what you’ve gained, and what about those experiences have made you a wiser, stronger, and braver person. Pick yourself up and move forward proudly and confidently. Burn bridges if you must but distance yourself from these moments and leave them forever behind you on your journey. Leave the sadness, pain and disappointment of those moments in your past, only taking with you the strength you’ve gained from surviving these moments, so that you may avoid them, and use them in ways that improve and add value to your life. Move forward, without regret, but with the valuable lessons you’ve learned and the courage, wisdom and personal growth you’ve gained, having been all the better for surviving some of life’s toughest challenges. Move onward and upward, with the only time you will ever look back is to remember the good times, and to see how far you’ve come.
Take a minute to think about your future. Think about your blank canvas or pages in a story that has yet to be told and holds the possibility to be written in any way your heart desires. Think about all that life has in store for you, all that you are capable of, and all that you have left to become. Think about the endless possibilities your beautiful life has given you to do anything, be anyone, and live and experience life in any way your heart desires. Think about all that life has in store for you, all that you are capable of, and all that you have left to become. Think about the endless possibilities your beautiful life has given you to do anything, be anyone, and live and experience life in any way you can imagine. Think about the dreams you want to chase this year… about all the things you want to accomplish, and make the plans needed to achieve these dreams. Step forward into 2017 fiercely, with courage, faith, and determination that this will be your best year yet. Set goals, make plans, prepare, dream, and believe in yourself. Let nothing hold you back, let nothing discourage your ambition, let nothing spoil your passion for living life and finding your greatest happiness in this big, beautiful world, that is your oyster.
2017 is your year. You are the author, the director, the script writer, the cinematographer, the artist, the dreamer, the doer, the CEO, and the hero of your own life. Embrace these roles and let your heart, passion and goals unfold your plot, paint your successes, reach your dreams and bring joy to yourself and those who are around you in the most beautiful story and work of art called life. Believe in yourself and trust in your heart that 2017 will be your most brilliant and amazing year yet. If you truly give it everything you’ve got, it will be your year to rise, your year to shine, and your year to soar brilliantly across the skies like a shooting star, leaving a trail of love and glory, lighting the lives and hearts of all those who cross your path.
2017 is your year little star. Burn bright, soar high, and shine in every way that you can imagine.
