Finally…Hello, 2017

It’s 11 days into 2017 and it hasn’t really felt like a new year. Admittedly, I haven’t put a lot of effort into welcoming the year. The last couple of months of 2016 were financially and emotionally challenging times. There was drama, there were tears, and there were a couple of friendships lost. While I believe that some people simply don’t belong in our lives, it’s never pleasant to break bonds with people we care about.

The holidays were mostly restful and relaxing though marred by a few unpleasant events which, for the sake of starting afresh, I will not go into detail here.

The important thing is that the first full moon of the year is here tomorrow.  Those who know me well know that I’m a total selenophile.

What I love about the moon is that it is a constant reminder for me that life is a continuous series of cycles. And every moment is an opportunity to create a new beginning. The turn of the year may not have been what I had hoped it to be, but tomorrow is a new day.  In concurrence with 2017’s first full moon, I’m determined to get excited about this year and to crank up a positive outlook on things.

Outside my window I can see the almost full moon. It’s beautiful, hopeful, and promising.

Finally, I can wholeheartedly welcome 2017.

    • Thank you, girl! Your words mean a lot to me. It’s definitely challenging at times but you’re right, obstacles and unpleasantness are all part of life and our personal growth. Just taking it one day at a time and trying to see the lesson in every situation. Hope your year is off to a great start! Much love from CR. Xo
