New Beginnings

Spring

Windows open, cool breeze, warm temperatures, and almost smell the season of spring that’s in the air. A time when inspiration comes to life to organize, clean, and possibility start new projects. I enjoy feeling that incentive to open the windows, to go outside, and ideas begin to flow. Plans are made for summer vacations, get-together with friends and family, and schedules become filled with positive plans.

The outside becomes revitalized from the cold winter that kept me indoors. It can become a time for new beginnings. I feel rejuvenated and young to enjoy the park with my grand-kids, to walk around the lake, and freedom from the heavy coats and sweaters.

At times, it may be easy to restore some furniture, refresh the paint in a room, but it can be harder to uplift the spirit when ideas did not materialize as planned or some changes came with unplanned confusion or disappointments.

I think there are times in life, like the changing of the seasons to let go and start again. To establish new goals, toss out the old ideas, and begin again. It’s a project like any other; it takes time and effort. I think about goals that were previously established and not achieved, but like spring, it’s time to let go and begin again. Let go of the regrets, let go of the cold thoughts, let go of the heavy worries, and spring forward to a new beginning!

New Beginnings

Bursting through the soil,
Reaching for the sunlight,
Flowing in the breezed,
Buds and blooms begin again.

Fresh colors of rainbows,
Fragrances to stimulate,
Buzzing sounds to gather,
The outside comes to life.

Blue skies to inspire,
Green carpets to explore,
Nature gives birth to spring,
Songs of hope to sing!

New Year, Bright Beginnings

Last Sunset of 2011

Another new year to make decisions, view my opportunities, and find happiness within the various struggles and stumbles of life. I know I like the idea of new beginnings. I like that moment to pause and reflect and rethink my goals, so celebrating the New Year with friends offers that opportunity.

As I stood on the waterfront and watched the last sunset of the year of 2011, I will admit it was a beautiful sunset to observe and collect my thoughts. I realized that each year adds building blocks to move forward. I may have some years that I could dwell on the struggles, the troubles, and the regrets, but I have discovered it’s best to concentrate on the achievements, the strengths, and the successes I have made working through the difficult times. I am grateful that each year I become a better person surrounded by the love of family and friends. I have moments that made me laugh. I have experienced events that I will treasure. I continue to have the ability to dream. I have hope that situations work out for the best. I have faith that something bright will be heartwarming.

Many make resolutions and then eventually get frustrated that they couldn’t make the change. That is something I welcome…Change! It can be scary at times, frustrating that it may take me away from my comfort zone, but it always seems to bring something bright. To me, it’s like when I decided to paint the bedroom. It was frustrating to move the furniture and clean. It was scary financially of how much it cost for paint and new carpet. When the project was done, and I was able to rest for a day, walking into that new room, well I was satisfied, and it made me smile. It didn’t happen overnight, and it sure was work, but isn’t that what life is all about? Making the decision, planning the steps, accepting the work and looking forward to the reward of satisfaction and I will add, sharing the experience with those you love.

Yes, the economy has been down, unemployment has been an issue, but the joy I have received this past year with family and friends, the travels I have made, the dreams I have pursued, and the choice to focus on the good, has given me this past year sensational experiences to add to my journey of life. I welcome the New Year and look forward to 2012.

Year to Year
Minute by minute,
Day by day,
The choices I make,
The plans I create,
Give meaning I say,
To live life this way!

Commitment to Creativity

Pursuing Creativity within ourselves…
Each day offers the opportunity to become creative with our self, family, and neighbors. It gives us the strength to reach out, listen, and even forgive. Creativity allows us to learn, cope, and go beyond the boundaries of limitations. It dissolves the fences that restrict us within weaknesses. It removes the handicap of inability. There is no reservation to capacity. Creativity gives the freedom to take responsibility, ownership, and commitment to develop indefinite dreams and make them into reality to share with our self, family and neighbors.

Dare to Dream

Each Day
Sunrise Light,
Sunshine Warmth,
Night Fades,
Stars Hide,
New Beginning,
Miracle Behold!
