My short and simple post this New Year's Day is that you not WISH for a better year ahead, filled with love, health and happiness, but that you MAKE it happen.
All of these things are available to us if we are conscious about what we want. Saying I WANT to be healthy creates a want, a desire, but does not necessarily create health. For many months following diagnosis I told myself "I want to live". Finally I realised that I AM living. I AM alive. I shifted my thoughts from desire to gratitude, and in the process I got happy.
BEING love attracts love. Conscious eating, being present, enjoying the now (and gently being open to the lessons in the harder moments), these are the thought patterns which create happiness.
