End of a Decade

Tomorrow, when I wake up it will be the beginning of a new day, the beginning of a New Year, and the beginning of a new decade. How better to start it than with a dream of lovely days, lived one at a time, intentionally and with joy.

I always find the new year is a good time to take stock, and though I'm not great at keeping a list of resolutions, rather I like to look at the things I know, deep inside, that make a difference and make life sweeter.

This is what I am pondering.

How to Have a Lovely Day (Year, Life)

Smile when you see someone (even yourself in the mirror).
Slow down.
Say please and thank you.
Give lots of sincere compliments.
Dress nicely.
Wear your favorite perfume.
Really listen.
Pay attention to your surroundings.
Say "I love you".
Deeply wish others a lovely day, even if you don't get to say it out loud.

So Happy New Year to you. May you intentionally seek, and find, that Lovely Day that is within our grasp, everyday.

Do you make New Years Resolutions?

No New Years resolutions here. Just a refresh of my new life plans to live in the moment as much as possible and to love myself and others really deeply. You know, other than really wanting to find the focus on taking care of my health more this year, I think I live a really, really good life. This is a wonderful place to be in ! I am grateful and very blessed !
Wishing you a New Year full of light, love and laughter, my Lovely Heart Friend !
