Leave the last year where it is...behind you. The past is the past for the reason and the New Year gives all of us hope for the future. Focus on the positive energy that surrounds you and share with those nearest and dearest. No matter what age or size you are, you can be all you can be! (sounds like an army commercial...BUT...it's the truth).
Be good to yourself in 2012,,,,do all you can to be healthy and happy. You are so deserving of good things.
If you are one of those that detoxes to start of the New Year; whether it be fro energy or health purpose, don't forget to DETOX YOUR THOUGHTS this coming year.
Purge any negative thoughts and people you may have in your life. If it hasn't worked for you in the past then it's time to move forward with a fresh new purpose. Get out of those negative thought patterns...they are a serious block to your happiness.
Any change in behaviour takes time, so be gentle and kind to yourself while you bring the positive into your life. You may at first not feel worthy or that you are worth the time and change. That is the first thought you need to change. STOP IT! Refuse negative thought patterns and behaviors and distract yourself with something positive. Read a new book; go for a walk; call up a friend; keep a journal. All simple but every effective ways to refocus your energy. Believe it or not, at some point it becomes second nature to start seeing and believing the positive.
Small steps but brave ones in order to move forward in your life.
