I can't believe it's already 2016! Another year lies all fresh and waiting to see what we will do with it. I intend to live it with joy and gusto. There is so much to look forward to and I'm a big believer in focusing on all the good stuff that the future will bring, rather than worrying about what disasters might befall us (I'll cope with them if and when they appear on the horizon - worrying about them doesn't help at all.)
What 2015 taught me was to let the bad stuff go through to the keeper - deal with what can be sorted and let the rest go. No amount of dwelling on it makes it any better, so I refuse to give it head space now and I'm choosing instead to push it into the background and give more room to the blessings that are always around if you look for them.
So 2016 for me will be a year of facing into the sunshine, appreciating the good times and staying positive. I'm hoping it will be a joyride of sorts - one where the wind is in my hair and I'm sharing it with some good friends who are on the same journey as me. If you'd like to join the joyride feel free to grab one of those seats and see where we head to and where we actually end up - it should be fun!
All that talk of joyrides made me think of Roxette - I loved their music in the 1990's - it was so upbeat and buoyant - I dug into Youtube and found a video of their song to get 2016 off to a rocking start! It'll be one of the songs playing in my car as we drive off into the new year!
