This time of year always finds me feeling a little glum. Two days after my birthday, the end of celebration has finally arrived. Even here, in Jamaica it is a grey day on the hill. Believe it or not, it’s too cold to swim at the beach. Especially if you are older than five. I haven’t completely lost hope. But this is indeed the “let down”phase. All of the preparations and expectations for the holidays and a year of life and wisdom gained, have been opened, celebrated and neatly packed away.
Hmmmmmmm, I wonder, what now?
I’m feeling blu but keeping it on the positive. Today (rathar than smell the coffee and face the year ahead), I am reflecting on this last year. I started 2010 with a Mondo Beyondo list of things I dreamed of achieving. In all reality, I accomplished and was gifted more items on my list than I could have imagined. In fact, until I pulled the list out the other day and re-read the scribbled text, I was unaware and surprised by how much of the list had manifested. Just goes to show, when you put it out there in the universe the atmosphere and your subconscious work in your favor.
What pulls you through the grey and dreary days of winter? You may not be as fortunate as I am to have your eyes assaulted by bold, saturated, color. Year round, no less. I am sure there is something that perks you up. For me, today it’s realizing that I can be young for the rest of my life if I can: open my eyes and heart to see light and beauty, embrace all that I receive with gratitude and love, continue to create and inspire folks, be inspired by the smallest of things, recognize that blessings and curses can be benevolent, know the universe is working in my favor especially when I am too grumpy, tired or stubborn to see it.
How ’bout you?
One Love, walk good, embracing color & waiting out winter…
