Come on Dragon - Bring me Good Luck

Happy Chinese New Year!!!  It is the year of the Dragon and it is believed that the dragon is a symbol of good fortune and power. It symbolized big things to come. On New Year's Day we are not suppose to talk about the past but rather look forward to the future. I was going to write my post on my crappy weekend but not instead I will look forward to the good that is to come.

I am not a firm believer in Chinese astrology but could use the promise of something good to come. (I think we can all use the promise of good to come even if that good is status quo for the lucky some of you out there.) This post is a little different than normal as I lament on my negative thinking as of late. I need to stop being a negative Nora and be the  happy person I know I am.  I am done crying at red lights (yeah, I know its ridiculous) and relearn life is not that bad. The world does have goodness in it and we should cherish the miracle that is our life.

So my wish for myself as well as for you in this coming year is to have a wondrous year (regardless of which calendar you are on).  I hope you have fun all through the year and do work that makes you come alive.  I hope you get in the best shape of your life and learn to take better care of yourself. I hope you make a positive difference in the lives of those around. To live the life you want and live it to the fullest, not the way world wants you to live it. I hope you leave the past behind, move ahead and find the balm for any of your scars from the past – in form of love or your own courage. I hope you smile more and spread happiness around.

Thanks! I need all the help I can get :)

I can totally relate to your previous post. I had to go the pharmaceutical route and I don't regret it. It has helped to silence the hateful voices and allowed me to think straight. But it is a very personal choice. I hope whatever you do it helps you to get your balance back and treat yourself a little nicer. You deserve it.
