The New Year has arrived. It's time to snuggle and cuddle. To make new wishes; to renew, recharge, refresh and revise. It's that time of the year once again, when every one of us look forward to at least some changes in our lives. We make resolutions that we will lose weight, learn at least one new skill, worry less, exercise more, control our anger and kiss fewer frogs...
With the advent of a new year, new hopes are born, and we secretly wish that this year magic would happen; our life would improve, we will have more money, more success, better career, new house.
We hope that in this New Year we will finally find our true love, and meet our soul mate. Finish writing that book. Start a new business. We look forward to new beginnings. We do all this, at the start of every NEW YEAR.
These prototype wishes have a certain magic to it, despite the fact that as the month meanders towards its end, the crispness of such wishes start to wilt under the dampening routines of life. Come February and we find that our life is more or less still lying into the same cut and paste monotony of last year.
Did I mention magic? Yes, I did in the paragraphs above.
Magic is something we all secretly wait for, no matter how hard-bitten and cynical we become as the passing years vanquishes our spirit. We hope that somehow, something or someone will arrive and turn that magic wand and our life will flip over.
But what we don't know is that we all have the powers to create magic in our lives.
We must know that the New Year is not a Genie that will bring us all that we have secretly been wishing for. We need to get inside that bottle and be that Genie ourselves.
I would like to share with you my own personal formula that I have devised this year to create that magic in my life.
These are the set of 'decisions' I have made to create magic in my life. See if you can relate to some of these.
