New Year’s Eve Blessings


I’m still immersed in my last minute New Year’s cleaning. But I’m also excited for tonight. I love to start the new year well and I will have a special entrance into 2008.

Confession: I’ll be home solo tonight!
Confession: I’m VERY HAPPY that I’ll be home solo tonight!

Women often feel they need to have a date, no matter what or who. Some feel embarrassed to have no plans. Not me! I love me and enjoy spending solo time. It’s a joy, not a sentence.

Confession: A guy I just began dating asked what I’m doing tonight. I said I have a date with me! ? And I do.

Years ago, I was stood up by a guy I was mad for on New Year’s Eve. Long story. I was devastated. The following year, a friend told me her mom always said that the way you enter the new year sets a tone for the rest of your year. She pushed me to go out partying with her and a group of her friends. But I decided if what her mom said was true, I wanted to enter the new year peacefully. So I stayed home with some Chinese food and my favorite cookies. Was peaceful and had a peaceful year. Since then, I only spend that night with a friend I’m very close with or a serious boyfriend.

Otherwise, I’d rather spend it with just me.

Many folks don’t understand it but I’ve been looking forward to tonight. I have some great meditation and motivational CDs. When I finish cleaning, I’ll go out and buy my favorite cookie as a treat. Around 8 I’ll turn off all the lights, light lots of candles and pour a glass of wine. Then I’ll get comfy and listen to the CDs. Some years I write down everything I’m angry about and burn it. This year I don’t feel anger so I can skip that.

After the CDs I’ll say all my blessings out loud—every one I can think of. I’ll say thanks to all the people in my life that I appreciate. Then I’ll affirm out loud how great 2008 is. Then a little more quiet, self time, until I watch the ball fall. I’ll enter the New Year with a bang and a big smile. ?

I hope that you all have a very wonderful, peaceful and hopeful New Years Eve too.

Many blessings to you all!! I’ll talk to you next year! ?
