It’s New Year’s Eve. I can’t believe it. One minute, I was griping about September and all of a sudden it’s December 31, 2014.
I couldn’t be happier. This year has been an eventful year but I’m done with it now and I’m ready to welcome in 2015 with open arms. With the days getting longer, I can feel Spring slowly creeping closer. Yes, I’m quite aware that we’re in the midst of winter but when I’m optimistic, I’m OPTIMISTIC.
Over the course of the holidays, our family has been able to spend more time together to appreciate the little things in life. There’s been a lot of eating, a lot of sleeping, and a lot of relaxing. I think that’s quite the impressive holiday resume!
Today will be a day of relaxation but also a day of reflection, to think back on all that has happened over the course of the year (the good and the bad). To reflect, to accept, and to move forward. That’s what makes New Year’s so special. There’s hope and a commitment to that hope.
Today’s post goes out to all our readers at ThingsThatWeDo.com. May you enjoy today however you please. Appreciate those small subtle moments that can often go unnoticed. Sometimes the greatest gifts come in the smallest packages.
If you’re up for a little homework, here’s a neat little site that I stumbled across courtesy of one of our regular readers “L”. Faithtap.com offers a great selection of video clips that are extremely powerful and inspiring to watch. Some are about the friendship between humans and animals, some are about children, some are about random acts of kindness, and there are plenty of cool music clips too.
Here’s one that I particularly enjoyed that I think it a perfect fit for how we should all be: happy and at peace, even when sleeping! Baby Giggling in Sleep
