Chapter One of 2016 is gone… Hope it was a great start of the year for you. For my Northern Hemisphere friends are thankful that the long cold winter is ending and welcoming the spring. Over the Southern Hemisphere, we enjoy summer with our family, loved ones and friends. Some took time off work or leave to have a getaway to reconnect, replenish, rewind, regroup, relax and refocus with the Creator, self and loved ones.
Ready to kick start Chapter Two of 2016. Big welcome to Happy February where most of us go back into our routine school and work life. The challenge is not just to do the routine like Groundhog Day last year. There is this saying by Robin Sharma “Don’t live the same year 75 times and called it a life.” I guess is up to us individually to question, redefine, confront and claim our real purposeful lives back.
We need to ask and answer honestly ourselves the following questions. No one can answer that for you. People may come along side with you and cheer you on. The truth is only you can choose your own path and walk your own life journey. Love yourself enough to figure this out, don’t let another year go by doing same old stuff. After all February is a month of love. Self love is not selfish. Without loving ourselves, we will be running on empty, unhappy and resentful.

Leaving you with some wise quotes to ponder:
Believe that God is doing something NEW!
“This is what GOD says, the God who builds a road right through the ocean, who carves a path through pounding waves, The God who summons horses and chariots and armies— they lie down and then can’t get up; they’re snuffed out like so many candles: “Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands. Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’ —the coyotes and the buzzards— Because I provided water in the desert, rivers through the sun-baked earth, Drinking water for the people I chose, the people I made especially for myself, a people custom-made to praise me.” -Isaiah 43:16-21 MSG
