The last day of the year. Spend it well! We got a lot of snow yesterday, so we're going out with snow shoes to have a look around. Later we'll drive up to the Ski Valley for the torchlight parade and fireworks. There's nothing like the boom! and the light reflected off the side of a mountain. It's a good time to reflect on the past year, and plan for the new one.
I think a good year takes planning. We have a little ritual for New Year's Eve. We write our wishes, plans, goals for the coming year, make a copy to keep, and burn the other in the fireplace. It's like in Mary Poppins, when Jane and Michael write their ad for a new nanny, and the dad burns it. Of course it found it's way to Mary Poppins! We send our wishes to the Universe, and it's amazing how much of what we ask for comes to us. The trick is to be careful what you wish for. Pray like a lawyer. Leave nothing out. And most important, only speak in positives. Put your attention into what you want, not on what you don't want. It's fun. Try it, and see what happens!
Have a fun and safe New Year's Eve. I'll see you next year!
