I’m not into New Years Resolutions….but I am into Change (my word for the year Chris…Journaling Journey)
I will continue to ride the winds of change. I look foreward to the transformation 2016 will bring. With these transformations, comes an awakening of Spirit. This will open the portals for me to continue to move forward mentally, physically and emotionally.
So, what kind of changes do I foresee for me, myself and I in 2016?!?
- I will stop procrastinating. Now is the time to take flight. Taking a chance, a risk, is better than waking up one day saying “if only I had”.
- I will stop doubting myself and standing in my own way. I will start Believing in myself and my capabilities.
- I will be a friend to myself.
- Longer Soul Strolls (a must for my Spiritual growth)
- Pulling up my bootstraps and getting back on the getting fit and healthy band wagon (it’s time!)
- A promise to myself to ‘listen’ to what my body, my spirit are trying to tell me.
Well, you get the gist of it. It’s a good start.
I also want to take this opportunity to say Happy New Year and Thank You, to all of you, my WP friends/family. The last 5-6 months has been an amazing journey through blog land. Because of y’all, this experience has turned into an incredible ride and eye opening adventure.
It would be remiss of me to not include a special shout out to Lady Calen (Impromptu Promptlings). Your friendship, your support, and encouragement have been a guiding force on this journey of mine. I’m forever grateful.

The hands of time
Tick tocking the moments away.
The final chapter
Of this book will be written.
The last period put in place,
And the book will be closed.
Reflection will follow.
There were stormy seas
That pounded and tried to break me.
There were times of peaceful calm,
When all seemed right.
What I have found
On this journey,
Is that my life
Is/was somewhere in the middle.
The rough seas help make me stronger.
The calm revitalizes.
In the middle, I find a cohesiveness
That makes my life’s journey
Explicitly my own.
The book is closed now.
A new one ready to be written.
With pen in hand,
I will turn the page,
Let the journey continue.
I find myself once again, in the sandbox, digging deep into places that haven’t been touched in sometime. The Sandbox Writing Challenge asked the question: If you could, what parts of yourself would you throw out?
Really?!?! That’s a hell of a question to be asking someone who’s been working so hard to accept themself in every which way……even the parts that I would throw out play a part in who I am. My feeling on this is, if I should/could throw away some aspect of who I am,,I’ll lose part of myself.. .My flaws, my imperfections, my idiosyncrasies make me who I am, they make me a whole person,,slightly cracked and skewed, but Me none-the-less.
So, my answer is…I wouldn’t throw any part of me out to the curb. That’s not to say I won’t keep working and striving to change some things,,,but you won’t find me on the garbage heap!
By the light of day
You stand, quiet, tall and proud,
A sentinel to all.
We look up to you,
And listen for the whispers,
The secrets of the Keepers.
In the darkness of night,
You come alive to
Shine your light for all.
Your light reaches out
It lights up the sky….
Brightly it shines
For all to see.
Your a beacon of hope,
For those souls lost…….at sea.
It’s that time folks…..Drumroll! It’s the last Monday Music Medicine Show of 2015! What New Years specific tunes have you found speak for the moment when we leave one year behind, and when we step across the border into new adventures and look forward?
From the movie New Years Eve
And New Years is just not the same without DC!
