“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things…” – Albert Einstein
We are preparing to let a year-end and another one to begin. The coming year 2019; holds surprises, losses, sadness, joy, kindness, happiness, and memories to cherish. Some of us will make new friends and some of us will release friends. There will be weddings and divorces, births and deaths.
- How will you plan for 2019?
- What action do you need to take to implement your plan?
- What goals are you setting?
- How will you contribute to life in general?
- How does the big picture in your life look?
- What are you letting go of?
I want to share with you a process of deeply looking within and answering the following questions. There does not need to be a surprise in 2019. You as a Divine Essence of God have the power to manifest your heart’s desire.
“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life…” – Shannon L. Alder
- Who do you believe you are?
- In life daily, who do you show to others, that you are?
- Do you have boundaries set?
- How accepting are you?
- How rejecting are you?
- Who and what do you let in? Why?
- Who and what do you keep out? Why?
- Who are you connecting to through communication in your world?
- What kind of relationships are you forming?

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect…” – Anais Nin
I have been witness to the power of taking pen to paper since I learned how to write. A form of the depth of discovery of self becomes insightful as one goes within. We as a society are bombarded by the beliefs of a world that is an illusion. The truth of self waits to be awakened by the action of our thought process.
In 2004, I received the words; “find that which creates freedom of thought!” Hmm, I thought to myself what does that mean? I was clueless! I was enticed by the words especially ‘creates freedom!’ The journey began and I learned through the discovery of self that I had certain beliefs and truths that were gifts of mine to embrace. I learned to disengage from anything that was no longer serving me
After answering the above questions, may we all embrace the new year with a sense of belief, knowledge, and discovery of our truth of self? We as a society of human beings are desirous of a plan to move forward. The truth is that if there is no action taken there can be no freedom from the despair in our lives. There is a part of us that seeks a form of personal growth and self-mastery in our lives. The truth of who we are is in the answers we discover as we go within.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that…” – Martin Luther King Jr.
In reflection, as I embrace the coming year 2019, I must admit I have lived the simple words of the above sentence to “find that which creates freedom of thought!” Connecting to the light within through the written word allowed me to create a life filled with freedom when I changed my thought process about myself, my life and others. I decided to choose love period.
