Hey everyone! Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve and I wish you all peace, light, and love for the coming year. Find what makes you happy! Be you! Celebrate you! Live your M.U.D. life to its fullest. If there’s one thing I learned in 2017 it’s that tomorrow is promised to no one. So live life now, and be grateful for this amazing, wonderful, crazy journey called life. Spread your light with others.
A few years ago I came across this quote from Rachel Brathen who wrote the book Yoga Girl. It’s an absolutely amazing book, and is available in the M.U.D. Life Bookstore powered by Amazon. I think it’s such a wonderful quote and helps to set you up for a positive, mindful New Year.
“Instead of setting new year’s resolutions such as ‘go to the gym more’ or ‘lose weight’, how about we all just make the promise to a be a little kinder to ourselves this year? Being happy and healthy begins with accepting and honoring ourselves for who we are. Don’t look at your reflection in the mirror thinking about all the ways you need to change it. Close your eyes, place your hands on your heart and breathe deeply. Feel the immeasurable beauty that you already possess! You are a gorgeous human being. Within, and without. Let this year be about cherishing your uniqueness. About accepting your body, your power, your abilities, your place here on earth. Stop resisting who you are and quit trying to change what you look like. Embrace! Loving yourself makes you radiant. And, trust me, making positive changes in life is much easier when you’re on your own team.”

And here’s another thing you can do for the New Year. A friend of mine posted this on Facebook the other day, and I absolutely loved it. It’s such a positive way to spread your light with others and do one small act of kindness. I invite you all to take part too. Share this message on your Facebook page and help to bring light to others in the New Year.
“Okay, so the first 10 people to comment on this post will receive a surprise from me in 2018. It can be a letter, something handmade, a book, a balloon, a flower, a coffee invitation, anything that I can think of in the moment. It can happen anytime in 2018. The only thing you have to do is comment on this status and re-post it on your wall. Just do something nice for someone else, it is that simple 🙂. Kindness- let’s spread it like confetti! ❤️ #BeKind#beablessing“
Today is a new chapter in our journeys. When the New Year begins, it’s like hitting a reset button. We have 365 days of a story that is yet to be written. Let’s make 2018 the best year yet. Be kind. Be a blessing. Share your light. Kindness – let’s spread it like confetti!
