I like to think of New Year as an open gate onto an untrodden path. I love the excitement of not knowing what lays ahead, what challenges, what opportunities and what I might discover I’m capable of when I step out into that unknown.
It can be quite a challenge depending on the amount of vowels that turn up, but what constantly surprises me is the way we each manage to see different words from the same letters. It's a lot like life. We never know what’s going to turn up and sometimes we are thrown a less than desirable hand but the most important thing is what we see in the hand we are dealt and how we respond to it.
Unknowingly we paint a picture of ourselves in the way we live our lives.
Roald Dahl says, “Above all watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it”.
The magic of seeing someone’s soul as we take the time to observe their life and listen to their heart. For every soul is filled with magic if only we have the eyes to see and are willing to open the gate to our own heart.
So often we lock the gate to protect ourselves and safe and secure, we miss the magic.
May 2019 be for you the year of unlocked gates, open hearts and well trodden paths.
