★♥★Happy New Year and Welcome 2014 to You & Yours!★♥★ We made it and I’m delighted to be back to familiar territory again. A year ago today, I had an upbeat list of tips for 2013. Suffice it to say, my year took off quite well and then life and its many unpredictable events happened. Today, I welcome 2014 with a grateful heart and wish you much happiness with equal parts Bliss, Peace, Love, and Gratitude.

I’m rededicating myself to blogging  regularly again, after a challenging hiatus, and some of the events/opportunities I’ll be involved in are:  Zero to Hero  and NaBloPoMo. Join in if you’d like to blog with us.  Thank you to all; family, blog friends, buddies, visitors, newcomers, and guides. You’ve been a source of inspiration during my silence.  Below are my 12 special Happy New Year 2014 gifts/blessings/wishes to  each of you.

“…the object of a new year is not that we should have a new year, but rather that we should have a new soul.” G.K. Chesterton

For the last 3 years, I’ve sent out the blessings below because they’ve guided my actions and helped me handle challenges in a positive manner. Instead of New Year’s resolutions, I offer each of you the twelve gifts/themes listed and encourage you to practice choosing one as a point of focus every month. Choose one gift from the twelve or follow the order I’ve created and write/meditate/share the lessons learned for each month of the year. Each word has power and prayer and can be used as an affirmation to help us along. Enjoy them and do come back and share your joy. Here are my twelve 2014 Happy New Year gifts/blessings/wishes to each of you:
♥ Health
♥ Happiness
♥ Hope
♥ Abundance
♥ Grace
♥ Peace & Love
♥ Wisdom
♥ Friendship
♥ Goodwill
♥ Success
♥ Adventure
♥ Divine Protection

Feel free to create your own wish list of twelve and try the suggested tips above. What did you do on January 1, 2014? Did you have a complicated or auspicious beginning? Do share? Thank you! 🙂 ♥Happy New Year! 🙂

Positive Motivation Tip: Each new year brings a blank page with plenty of opportunities to reinvent ourselves. Go for it.
