As 2013 draws to a close ~

How to begin...

I found this advise on Facebook somewhere, at some time, not knowing who wrote the words, but wanted to share them as I write this with only ten minutes left in 2013.

Happy New Year to everyone….and as we begin 2014 at various times during the upcoming hours, plan on this new year being the beginning of something really special. There’s nothing like a new year to wipe the old slate clean of all we don’t want in our lives, to make room for all of the new and amazing people and things we wish to have surrounding us!

  1. Excellent advice – sometimes loving yourself is the hardest thing to do. Wishing all of these things for you in the new year!

    1. Dearest Carol, happy new year to you, my friend. It takes time to learn how to love yourself, and you are so worth loving, so please be kind to you. ❤


  2. This is really lovely, Joanne. Thank you for sharing. Indeed, may we learn to love ourselves unconditionally. I have been thinking about this all day. No matter who we are, there are ways in which we can be more tender and generous to ourselves. Then, I am sure, the love will spill outward toward all others.


  3. Thanks for sharing this Joanne. It has already been 2014 for most of the day for you as I am writing this comment – I hope it is treating you well so far! Best wishes for a wonderful new year.


  4. Hello Joanne and Happy New Year ! Thank you for sharing those advices I am going to write in my diary. Each of them resonates true with me. 2013 was not the easiest year I went through, 2014 can only be Better 🙂


    1. Happy new year Isa! Now that is a fantastic idea, to write quotes we like in our diaries. I’m always finding, then losing favourite quotes so I’m going to do that myself. 2014 will be better Isa, I’ve heard a few people say they that 2013 wasn’t their best year, so I have high hopes for 2014. 🙂


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
