I got schooled yesterday… and I mean schooled big time! In my journal over the last few weeks I had been writing about wanting to receive some fun and playful surprises in my life while not stating how this would present in my life. Then on Thursday night I was speaking with a friend about a recent date she had been on and how this man was attentive and spoiled her with attention.

One of my guilty pleasures is Facebook. I love looking at the inspirational quotes, the baby pictures of friends kids, silly quizzes, and just hearing what the people I care about are doing with their lives. Though as I look through posts and even talk to people in person they tell me how ready they are to be rid of 2016 and then go on to explain how horrible it was.
I find issue with this for several reasons. By bashing 2016 you are inadvertently creating more of that energy. You are telling the Universe, “Life sucks and nothing good happened this last year” and so that is exactly what you call more of into your life. As we go into the New Year and only focus on all the perceived negative elements of 2016 then we are sitting in a negative vibration when we start this brand new year. I don’t know about you but I want to start my year excited and hopeful for all the adventures and blessings coming my way.
