A Reflection of Time

Photo CollageAs the year comes to an end and we welcome the new year, we often read many articles and posts about creating new goals, resolutions, plans and vision boards for the future. And as much as I agree with this exercise as being one of the most important activities required for a plan, I feel that another important factor is missed out in the process and that is honouring our past.

Why is this a forgotten activity in our life?

We would not be in the present without experiencing our past. And by past, I do not mean many, many years ago. I mean celebrating the previous years’ achievements. Consciously honouring the moments and reflecting on the change that affected us or will affect the future is as important as knowing who is coming for dinner. Why … because thats where your preparation begins.

How do you really feel the minute the clock ticks over to the new year?

For many years, my relatives had a big party in Singapore and I never felt the full blown effects of the remarkable passing into the new year.

But when the time came, I was given the opportunity to experience the change into the new year on my own, it was truly a significant change for me. As time moved into the early hours of January, there was an incredible sense of freshness that filled the air. Like a passing into a new dimension of time. A truly magical and sacred ritual and I get to experience this every year. This experience has given me a sense of peace!

It is in this moment that I anticipate what the future holds for me and I create my own opportunities to experience a new change. How magnificent is this?

When you realize that moment of wonder and awe you begin to realize that everything around your is thriving and you are a part of the bigger picture in life. It is the most amazing feeling in the world.

And so, as we now slowly enter this new dimension of what we call 2015, I wish you the very best made possible in your life. May you revitalize and empower your life for an amazing year where all your dreams come true!

Good journey ahead!
