As I am writing this, the calendar is on the final page which signals that by this time 30 days from now, we will be in the year 2016. Hard to imagine that as a child of the 1960’s I would be measuring time with those digits. It felt so far in the distance, like sci-fi and the technology that I saw displayed at the World’s Fair in New York when I was five and then six years old. We had such fun that our family went two years in a row.

As I look back over the previous 11 months, I am powerfully aware of the events that have occurred in my life and the amazing growth and change that has taken place. I have continued regular workouts following a heart attack a year and a half ago and discovered that the real workouts are within. Emotional healing is equally important. I experienced what I call open heart therapy as I expanded my reach, allowing others in and offered enhanced self care. What I had become accustomed to by way of sheltering myself had kept me from fully feeling and experiencing life as outrageously as I could and so I allowed myself to be cracked open by life.

I put on my wings and traveled to California, South Carolina, Nevada, Jamaica, Louisiana and Arizona. This, after staying pretty close to home for years, so it was a pretty big deal.

I lost one job and gained two more. I expanded my reach professionally as my writing continues to travel world wide.

Another book is in the process of being created about the concept of being an opti-mystic who sees the world through the eyes of possibility.

New friends have entered my life, as has another returned after a hiatus. All are precious.

Grief has become a presence felt after years of repressing it in the service of keepin’ on keepin’ on. It has washed me squeaky clean and reminds me of the power of love to heal.

I have become bolder in my actions and words, leaving nothing left unsaid and no stone left unturned, since I have come to realize that life is fleeting and I don’t want to miss any opportunities.

I have stretched comfort zones and become more flexible, leaving behind stiff and worn ways.

My gratitude muscles have grown as I have discovered more for which I am thankful.

Intuitive abilities have strengthened as I have tapped in to the Universal flow.

I have become increasingly willing to explore my shadow, rather than deny that it exists. As a result, I have danced in the light with greater grace.

With 24 days left in this last month of the year, my intention is to allow for more love in my life, for expanding my horizons, for being of greater service to the world.

What are yours as the year winds down?  There is still time to boldly live your heart’s desires.
