Welcome 2015: Happy New Year!

Spread the love

New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today, carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change. Sarah Ban Breathnach

Welcome 2015: Happy New Year!

Welcome 2015: Happy New Year!


I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. Neil Gaiman

Happy New Year! For several years, I’ve sent out the twelve gifts/blessings below because they’ve  been a positive influence on how I spend my year. Instead of New Year’s resolutions, I offer each of you all twelve gifts and encourage you to practice choosing one as a point of focus every month. Contemplate one each month and note how it has helped shape your decisions. Words have tremendous power and these words can be used as monthly affirmations to help us along. Enjoy them and have an abundantly blessed 2015!  Here are my twelve 2015 Happy New Year gifts/blessings/wishes for each of you:
♥ Health
♥ Happiness
♥ Hope
♥ Abundance
♥ Grace
♥ Peace & Love
♥ Wisdom
♥ Friendship
♥ Goodwill
♥ Success
♥ Adventure
♥ Divine Protection

You may create your own wish list of twelve and try using the suggested tips on affirmations above. What did you do on January 1, 2015?  Happy ♥ New ♥ Year! 

If you are on the WordPress platform, join us for the Daily/Weekly Blog prompts. You won’t regret it!

Post a Day 2015!

Post a Day 2015!


Positive Motivation Tip: Each new year offers us an opportunity to start with a clean slate.  Make the best of yours in 2015.

    Those words each so deep and full of meaning. I really like the idea of focusing on one each month!

    What a great idea! I may have to do this, I haven’t heard of it before. You chose some great words!

    I spent January 1 with family, as we always do. It’s a practice that my Mom has instilled in us and it’s a mortal sin for her to not be with family on New Year’s Day. After all, family is love.

    It’s always great to start the year on a positive note – it helps attract positive energy. I wish you a lot of opportunities, more love, and more reasons to smile in 2015. Happy New Year, Elizabeth.

    Happy New Year! I didn’t really do much on the first of the year. Spent time with my children! I hope everyone has a great new year this year!

    This is a great idea. I started the year off by sitting on the couch with my feet up. I am going to try to relax a little more this year.

    I like the idea of the 12 gifts and how we all have the start of a new month for a clean slate. I think these help us focus on doing good and in being good every single month in 2015 and hopefully every single day of this year. May you continue to be blessed as well this year, Elizabeth.

  26. 02/01/2015 7:07 pm

    Good list, I’m not sure what I’d out on mine right now. Probably some similar things.

  27. 02/01/2015 9:17 pm

    Happy New Year to you and yours!

  28. 03/01/2015 12:38 am

    Happy new year, wishing you a blessed start. It’s true a new year breaths potential everything like opportunities to make new friends, to find new job etc.

  29. 03/01/2015 1:04 am

    Like the quote at the top, making mistakes is important but only if you learn from them. If you don’t reflect and learn from them, you are bound to keep making the same mistakes!

  52. 03/01/2015 10:58 pm

    Lovely list of words to contemplate and live by~ I especially resonate with ‘Hope’ and ‘Adventure’… There’s something to be said for looking outwards, to unknown potential and opportunity…. that keeps you going. 🙂 Great monthly focuses!

    Stopping by from Mom Blog Society Blogger FB! Thanks so much for the motivation! For the new year, we definitely need to stay inspired and motivated to do better and be better 🙂 You should make an infographic on this post, I think it would make a lot of people pin it up and print it for reminders 🙂
