This comes from Maggie Hanna of www.transitionsbychoice.com
and it really made sense to me. Please feel free to contact her about life coaching (she is offering a free teleclass January 26th, 7 p.m. Mountain Time).
“It is said that how something starts, is how it will go, and how it will end. Okay. One more time with feeling!.... It is said that how something starts, is how it will go, and how it will end. What an excellent time to be mindful of the seeds we are planting in our lives and the lives of others. What if we knew, as we wade into the crowds, that our state (frustration and rushed, or open-hearted and present) is setting the stage for how our celebration will go. What if we understood that how we begin the New Year sets a resonance for how the whole year will go and how it will end. Might that be an incentive to be mindful of how we are in the world at this special time of year.”
