Happy New Year…

December 31, 2015 at 12:39 pm (Magic, Wheel of the Year, With thanks) (, , , )

nyeWishing everyone a magical night tonight, as we farewell the old year, and all the good, bad and strange we’ve been through, and welcome in a new one.

I am grateful for a magical 2015 – for the good things and the bad things, the new friends and the lost friends, the successes and the struggles, the inspiration and the exhaustion…

And now we are on the cusp of a new year. It’s strange… Technically it’s no different today than yesterday – Chinese New Year is far more meaningful energetically, being celebrated on the spring new moon – and yet there is still the energy of stepping through a doorway, of releasing the year that has gone and welcoming the grand potential and promise of a new one, of being grateful for love deepened and dreams lived and friendships made and goals achieved and lessons learned and wisdom gained… and even the less-than-stellar moments of dreams frustrated and loss felt and pain suffered. It’s all part of the magic and wonder and adventure of life…

May 2016 be filled with love and joy and enchantment, and passion and dedication and inspiration, and may you fight to make your dreams come true.

Happy New Year!

January 1, 2015 at 11:31 pm (With thanks) (, , )

Happy New Year! Wishing everyone a wonderful 2015, full of love, joy, adventure and magic. Make this the year you dare to go after your dreams! Dream big, take chances, risk everything, learn from so-called failure and push yourself out of your comfort zone, because that’s where results are made, where happiness lives, where magic exists and where dreams come true.

I don’t really do resolutions, I guess because I think every day has the potential for new beginnings in it, and I don’t wait until January 1st to decide what I want to do, or start doing it (I’m too impatient, ha ha)… But this year I will finish Into the Light, the third book in the Into the Mists Trilogy (no pressure there, gulp!), and continue working out every day – I’ve been doing it for more than two years now, and can’t see that changing. I’m excited about the new Jillian Michaels program, keen to finish Shaun T’s T25, and looking forward to Chalean Extreme and P90X3…  I’m enrolled in two courses – grief counselling and sports nutrition – which I’m looking forward to continuing, although the book deadline is my first priority. And I’m hoping life at the magazines calms down a little, although that’s probably not very realistic…

Today I’m grateful for a beautiful peaceful day at home – it was so quiet here in the morning, since I guess most people were sleeping off their New Year’s Eve celebrations.

I’m happy I worked out in the morning – a cool T25 Upper Focus weights workout that I liked so much I did it twice, and PiYo Buns, which hammered my lower body 🙂 Great combo!

I’m grateful for time with my hubby, and pots of chai tea, and e-chats with my workout buddy, and diving in to Anne Rice’s new book Prince Lestat, which I love! So cool that my favourite author of my teens and twenties is still releasing awesome books! And that I’m “letting” myself read a bit before I knuckle back down to serious writing time 🙂

Have a magical day, and a magical year! xx
