1) See yourself exactly the way you are. See what is good, and what is left to improve. Without condemning or hating yourself. Without considering you are better than others, or worse. To see and accept yourself for who you really are and take responsibility for your flaws while appreciating your qualities.
2)Have no regrets. There's nothing more valuable. To know that the choices you've made, were appropriate to that moment in time. To understand that you are exactly where you are supposed to be , and that what really matters is not which road you took, but what motivated you to make that choice. The reason behind the choice is what matters in our evolution. Once the motivation is changed, the path we are on will change as well. Nothing is permanent or unchanging.
3)Live in the present moment. Invest your feelings and thoughts only in the present. Do not waste your energy living in the past. Have no expectations from the future. Be awake here and now, without interpreting everything through the filter of the past. It is not an easy task. But I wish for you to be able to do it.
4) See the world through the eyes of a child. Let yourself be amazed by everything that surrounds you. Love as a child does, and speak out your mind with absolute sincerity. A child will always tell you what he thinks or feels. Have an open heart. A child has no 'ego', pride, preconceptions or expectations. And does not hold a grudge. I wish for you to have the same purity.
5)Have the power to say No. Have the strength to refuse compromising yourself or your principles. Remain true to yourself and your beliefs and do not betray who you are. Stand your ground.
6)Follow your heart. It is probably the most important thing you can do. By heart I mean the inner voice, that has nothing to do with logic. It is the voice of your soul, of the spirit, your connection to Divinity, whatever you conceive it to be. Call it the Universe, the energy behind matter, the source of life. But you are connected to it. And is guiding you whenever you need it to. All you have to do is listen.
7) Do not be afraid to take chances. Sometimes we need to risk it all, in order to make our dreams come true. I wish for you to have inspiration, faith, and wisdom, when life will offer you a difficult choice.
8)Be ready for change. Change is part of life. And it is never a punishment, it is always a gift. It is also the sign that we are ready to transition to a new stage in our evolution. Without change we cannot evolve.
9)Heal your wounds. Never give up trying. Never give up believing that solutions will come.
10)Dare to dream . Dare to follow your dreams. It is why you are here. It is the reason you have conscience, and freedom of choice. It is what defines you as human. And much more than that, it is how life in every one of its forms, has been expanding. We can only go forward. And you are part of that. So enjoy the ride...
And have a Happy New Year :)
