Happy New Year to you all!
Big changes coming in 2017 for Breaking The Shell...Stay Tuned!!
"Before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year let us all take some time to reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both out triumphs and our missteps. Our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt. Because that's what New Years is all about. Getting another chance. A chance to forgive. To do better. To do more. To give more. To love more. And to stop worrying about what if and start embracing what will be. So when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, lets remember to be nice to each other. Kind to each other. Not just tonight but all year long."
The New Year is fast approcaching. Take some time in the middle of your New Years party to have a Private Party.
A time to celebrate you and the year that has going by.
The lessons learned.
The growth that has taken place. Chanes are your not the same person you were on January 1st.
Celebrate the person that this year helped you to become and look forward to the next year and the journey ahead.
"I'm having a private party
Ain't no body here but me, my angels, and my guitar singin' baby look how far we've come here
I'm havin' a private party
Learning how to love me
Celebrating the woman I've become, yeah
I tried to call my mother, but
She didn't get where I was going
I called my boyfriend and he said
Call me back a little later baby
I hung up the phone, I felt so alone
Started to feel a little pity
That's when I realized that I
Gotta find the joy inside of me
I'm gonna take off all my clothes
Look at myself in the mirror
We're gonna have a conversation
We're gonna heal the disconnection
I don't remember when it started
But this is where it's gonna end
My body is beautiful and sacred
And I'm gonna celebrate it
All my life
I've been looking for
To make me whole
But I had to learn the hard way
True love began with me
This is not ego or vanity
I'm just celebrating me
Sometimes I'm alone but never lonely
That's what I've come to realize
I've learned to love the quiet moments
The Sunday mornings of life
Where I can reach deep down inside
Or out into the universe
I can laugh until I cry
Or I can cry away the hurt"
Lyrics by: India Arie
A line from "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" my abosulte favoite Christmas special.
This film holds a very special place in my heart.
Each Christmas season when I watch it I am transported back to when I was a child and I remember the magical feeling that Christmas held for me.
To me Santa Claus is more then a person or an idea. He is a feeling.
A feeling of hope. Of faith. And a feeling of Love.
"Poor, misguided folks. They missed the whole point. Lot's of unhappiness? Maybe so. But doesn't Santa take a little bit of that unhappiness away? Doesn't a smile on Christmas morning scratch out a tear cried on a sadder day? Not much maybe. But what would happen if we all tried to be like Santa and learned to give as only he can give: of ourselves, our talents, our love and our hearts? Maybe we could all learn Santa's beautiful lesson and maybe there would finally be peace on Earth and good will toward men."
I made it!
I made it!
There are power in those words!
I made it!
Take some time today and be proud of yourself.
Make "I made it" you mantra today.
You made it. You made it through.
Whatever that may be...
A health problem, realtionship issues, finance issues, family issues...
You made it. You are still here standing today.
Celebrate that and be proud!
I made it through the storm and the rain
So much heartache, pressure, so much pain
I've been broken into pieces, maybe more
Some nights I made my bed right on the floor
The emeny really tried to take me out
Hit me with his best shot and knocked me down
But I'm still standing after all I've been through
I survived through all of this because of you.
I remember all those days I walked in shame
Only recognized for all of my mistakes
Sometimes I thought that they would but they walked out the door
Swear up high that my heart can't take no more
You're the only one that never left me
When everybody else just didn't care
You're the only one that really loved me
I made it, through the storm and through the rain
I made it, every hardache and failure
I made it, I made it
I made it, I made it
I gotta say thank you Lord
Thank you Lord, thank you Lord
I would have never, made it without you

Dont judge someone untill you know what their story is.
We dont know what anyone could be going through.
F-E-A-R has two meanings:
'Forget everything and run' or
'Face everything and rise.'
The choice is yours.
"If you are looking for answers, the best thing to do is pause, get still and listen.Cultivating the ability to listen to our inner wisdom, our heart, our soul, our intuition is perhaps the most important skill we will ever learn.
If you simply traded all the time you spend defending why you can't have the life you desire and instead took up the practice of genuinely listening, your whole life would change. "
