Today is Chinese New Year so I want to wish you a prosperous year with health and happiness. It is the Year of the Fire Monkey which for me symbolises a time to jump in and kickstart ventures that have been on the horizon for a while. It seems that this is the year for it.
It is also a good opportunity to let go of anything that no longer serves you. As you lighten the load it makes that jump far easier and helps to bring a new perspective to things you may not have seen before.
When I think of the monkey, I think about how life can go many ways depending on the choices we make. We could end up slipping on the bananas so to speak which I’m sure many can relate to at some point in their lives or we can eat some of the right bananas available to us and allow all the goodness to nourish our bodies. We can somehow make the best of what we have and whatever happens, I believe it is all good really.
Experience is everything…
To the soul there is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’, only experiences to which we gain what we need in this lifetime to grow. Like the trees from which the monkeys swing, we can stand tall with strength and courage to do what has never been done before and to be who we want to be rather than who we think we ought to be.
Like every year, I want to make it all count.
“The secret to living the life of your dreams is to
start living the life of your dreams today,
in every little way you possibly can.”
