Yesterday Aris, Melessa, and I all skipped out on skiing to go get 'the best massage we have ever gotten.' It seriously was way worth the missed ski day. My massage therapist asked me in the middle of the massage if she could say a sort of blessing over me. Well. . . knowing me, of course I did not tell her no. I prepared myself during the rest of my massage for what this blessing could be like and really opened up to see what her beliefs were. She surprised me. She spoke words in a way that completely opened my eyes to life and really made me think about my year to come.
With the new found peace that her words provided me with, I was inspired to write my own little 'blessing' for my new year:
May I continue to dream big and only live in a way to conquer those dreams.
May I cherish my family and never cease to be amazed by the bond we have together.
May I wake up each day and treat it like it is my last.
May I leave the past in the past and only live for a bigger, brighter future.
May I take my goals and allow them to grow to higher places. [This world is big enough for an even bigger Alexandra]
May I .love. with all my heart and give love to the ones who will adore it in return.
May I have hope, may I have greater faith, and may I have stronger, deeper courage.
May I have more patience each day and continually allow people to bless me.
May I live my life fearless in knowing that there IS a plan for my life.
May I grow in Spirit, in knowledge, and in wisdom so that in 2012 I can be even greater than I am today.
With hopes that you all live life to your fullest this year, and that you take the life that you are given and make a difference in someones life. We are all here to be better, and use our own individual talents to help those around us.
Go out and make more of your life this year. . . I challenge you.
