I love a fresh year. Each new year brings open doors for so many things. I am thankful for the doors that opened in 2014 and also for the ones that closed. And the year ahead I know will come with many openings and closings.
I hope that you take time today or this weekend to really dream for 2015. To embrace all that is ahead, a new chapter. Ready for the journeying.
One of my favorite authors is Jennie Allen and she has put together a great starter if you don't know where to begin yourself. Check it out! If you are a dreamer you will love it. If you have sort of forgotten to dream...this will restart you.
And for the forgotten dreamer, I want you to know I get you.
One of my favorite quotes comes from the movie Hope Floats:
"Beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning...just give hope a chance to float up."
We stand at a new beginning.
No matter how 2014 ended for you, we are all, all of us, standing at the start.
Before you start, dream a little.
And as you are dreaming, give hope a chance.
If you don't feel it now...give it a chance to float it's way into your heart again.
Doesn't have to be big.
No matter, give it a chance.
I am excited for this little diary here in cyberspace. My hope and desire is that when you read this diary you laugh, you are encouraged, and you feel normal.
