Happiest of New Year wishes sent your way.
Hopes for goodness, and love and beautiful days.
And merriest feelings in your heart, all through the year.
With wishes and dreams a plenty.
And extra doses of "wishes come true."
I love the numbers 7 and 13.
Yay 2013, hello there, so nice to see you!
For some reason I like odd numbers.
Maybe because I see an odd number as an even number, with one extra back up.
Just in case.
Like, a bonus point or something ;)
I have lots of things on my mind this day...
Hopes I have for my own life.
Hopes I have for the world, the planet.
I have a menagerie of huge hopes, and little hopes too.
I have thoughts overflowing, about how I live my life, and want to continue to do so.
Things I don't like are silly life rules, that box us into proverbial cages.
Invented mind rules, which came from who knows where?
Rules on how to live, and think and be.
A phrase that makes me cringe is, Aren't you a little old for that?
I don't like some of the rules society makes us buy into.
Like, the things we should do by a certain age.
Or the things we should have.
Or, how, it's too late for some things.
Or how we have to grow up.
Sure there is a place and time for being wacky, but squashing it always is too sad for me to consider.
How sad is that?
I can't buy into that.
I am not interested in those kinds of rules.
Those kind of societal rules squash hopes and dreams.
Let's not buy into them, what do ya say?
I like to wear two different socks.
And sit on the roof and sing.
I like to feel extra young.
And have huge wishes and visions, and hopes hopes hopes.
It is never too late to dream.
It is never too late to try something big, new and different.
It is never too late to love, or skip, or feel great and fabulous.
So much of this life is a state of mind.
Peace and happiness in the soul was a main life goal I made for myself about 17 years ago.
And, it's a constant journey.
Sometimes it's easy, sometimes I have to remind myself.
I never had goals like, I hope to have this much money in this much time.
Or live in a big mansion.
Or, drive an extra fancy car.
(Sure, I'd love to be a princess in a castle, who wouldn't? But I had hopes, which money just can't buy)
When I was growing up (about 19), and friends were beginning to look for grand material things in life, I was just hoping for a happy life with inner peace.
I wondered if they already had inner peace and self love?
When I asked, most friends said they hadn't thought about it.
I realized we all want different things from life, which is great.
For me though...
Inner peace finding, was my main goal.
With true joy in my heart.
In my step.
And, I found it.
And it was grand, grander than I could have imagined.
Sure, life is sometimes really tough, and you have to refind it.
Life rocks your boat, and things can get rattled.
But, it's always there for you, when you are ready.
Of course, it's nice to have lovely things.
But, first and foremost...
The greatest wealth we can ever hold, comes from within.
It can't be bought.
It's there, always.
Our own happy.
A giddy wonderful place.
Right inside all of us.
If we want it...
Here's to hopes and dreams, and living outside the box.
Without invented mind rules.
Peace and goodness abound!!!
Thank you for a handful of fun great wonderful like minded years.
Here's to many more!
