A New Year

A new year is unfolding – like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within." ~ Unknown

The new year starts tomorrow and, looking back, I didn't achieve all that I wanted to.

So, what now?

Do I get mad because it didn't work out the way I wanted or do I see it for something else?

For me, I choose to see it as a time of appreciating contrast and further knowing of what I do want; of appreciating the things that did come into my life and that were enhanced in my life.

I appreciate the clarity and guidance it gave me and the ability (mentally, physically, emotionally) to move forward.Although I didn't accomplish those things I wanted to accomplish, it doesn't mean 2010 was a failure--It only means I became more focused.

There is always a choice: Will you follow your heart, your dreams, your goals and come to know who you truly are?

Or, will you stay stuck in the past of what should have been?

It's all up to you.

Have a Happy and Healthy 2011!

Is It the Words or the Vibration Behind Them?

Everything that doesn't kill you makes you stronger. And later you can use it in some story. ~ Tapani Bagge

I've been reading quite a bit on quantum physics/vibrational alignment/everything is energy, and my questions is: Are the things we write really about the words, or is it about the vibration of the story?

Don't get me wrong---the words, the story, and how it reads are all important. But, how do you explain the really bad published books of the world? It's not luck--no such thing. It's not karma-- that doesn't exist. It's not a lucky rabbit's foot, horseshoe or four-leaf clover. It's all vibration. It's the energy, the vibration of the story and of the writer; it's the entire energy that surrounds the work.

Does the writer believe in his/her work? What type of vibration are they 'giving off' in this whole process? Are they connecting to the vibration of those other vibrations that are searching for a piece of work like this?

Look at your writing and how you write it. What type of feeling surrounds it? Nervous, anxious, eager, happy, sad, depressed, excited, elated, resistant, grumpy, disconnected, bored, in-love?

Next time you write, tune in to how you are feeling about it. If it's positive, then you are on the right track. If you are feeling any negative or resistant emotion, then step back and evaluate. There's no use moving forward if you aren't passionate about what you are writing about.

Happy writing!
