As I write this, a fire is crackling in the fireplace.
The rotating Christmas tree is still doing its slow, sparkly twirl and the white lights of the mantel look like little stars twinkling in the green garland.
It is now 2017.
Just to write that makes me feel a little old. Yikers. The years are flying by faster than Santa's reindeer.
There are always lots of mixed feelings at the end of one year and the start of another.
Enthusiasm, a bit of fear, joy, anticipation, a tad of nervousness, gratitude----and many more feelings do dances in my heart.
This new year, I'm going to do something one of my nieces said she was going to do......love myself more.
That's not in a conceited or selfish way but in a kind and tender one.
After all, if we can love ourselves more, we'll have much more love for others.
If we are able to do just that one thing, love ourselves more, everything else will fall into place.
Never forget how very special you are!
WHAT IS ONE WAY YOU CAN LOVE YOURSELF MORE?
