The day started out here foggy and has remained so throughout the day.It seems as if everything is cloaked in a gossamer curtain. It seems sort of fitting as the year is slowly coming to a close and we peek around the corner of the curtain to the New Year.
I love New Years and the unwrapping of new calendars with days stretching forward waiting to be filled with hopes,dreams and life. I know it is just another day but I think we need days like this as sort of touchstones for life. I think they also allow us to see where we have been and where we are going .I think it allows us to excavate our souls like a bulldozer scraping away the hard packed ground of our lives allowing us to reveal who we are when no one else is around andwho we are behind the mask we show the world.
In this newly turned earth of our lives I think we see things we need to let go of and things we want to nurture and grow in the coming year.
I hope in the coming year to let go of my feelings of failure, perfectionism, and my need for acceptance by others and continue to understand I am okay just the way I am. I know growing up my mom knew I struggled with peer pressure and feel.ings of low self esteem and she bought me a plaque that said "I know I am somebody cause God don't make no Junk" and I know that is true . I hope in the coming year to nurture the things that need nurturing in my life and to Bloom
I will be working the next two days 12 hour shifts at the hospital so If I don't get back here to post please know that you are all blessing in my life and I wish you the best NEW YEAR EVER.
