There’s a new feeling this month. A chance for change, to break old habits, an opportunity to start something new.
This is the excitement that a new year brings to many of us.
I would like to show my love and appreciation for this new time by acknowledging the many blessings I received in 2012. Sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves to start the new year with a bang and work hard to achieve our goals, then we end up feeling tired and hopeless as the months go on because these visions we have are not instantly manifesting.
Have you ever stopped to think that maybe the way you are is already GRAND and PERFECT? I have seen this first hand as I lost my Dad last year. The love, support, emails, help and generosity I received from so many of you was in such abundance that it truly humbled me. How is it possible that so many people would stop their own lives to care for me and my family? My goodness……it IS possible and it DID happen, right before my eyes.
Having my own business has been rewarding because I get to create beautiful jewelry and build strong and lasting relationships with my customers. There are so many ways that we get to communicate creatively as well, through facebook, twitter, blogging, etc….. I really love that part. I get to express my opinions, hopefully provide inspiration and hear back from you!
I want you all to know that as I work through my own challenges and face a new world without my dear Dad there is something amazing that is happening. As I heal and remember him for the big force of life that he was, I wake up each morning and see him smiling at me, a big beautiful grin that says, “You’re still there and you get to LIVE!!! Go and do it!! Enjoy each moment! You don’t need to be perfect you just need to have FUN!”
So friends, let this be a 2013 message for all of us. Please remember how our own evolution as humans works… remember that whatever you are creating it’s worth it! Who cares if it’s not perfect just keep moving in the direction that makes you happy. Recognize your accomplishments by going back to see what you were doing last year and the year before and pat yourself on the back for how far you’ve come.
I look forward to seeing you all this year and I am excited to continue to grow glamjulz and keep you posted with blogging, facebooking and tweeting…..and of course it`s always a joy to hear from YOU!
I`d love to hear what is inspiring you for 2013!
