We want to change our life in 2017 but we don’t want any of the negative stuff to interfere. We don’t want sickness, loss or unhappiness. We want serenity and harmony and love. Yea, lots of love. Oh yea and good health too. Ooh, ooh, ooh, and a great body too. Did I mention money too?

In other words we want what we always want. So how do we make this year different? How do we get what we want? The answer is …we stop running. I don’t mean we give up the elliptical trainer and the 5Ks. We give up running from things we don’t want. 

Without looking into a crystal ball I can clearly see that in 2017 you will be touched by loss and sickness and disruption. Why? Is it because your stars aren’t aligned properly or you didn’t meditate or pray enough. No! It is because you are alive and you are living an earthly life and EVERY earthly life contains loss, sickness and disruption. 

When we even consider a thought of ourself or a loved one being sick, dying or having great difficulties, we run away from that thought as quickly as possible. And when we run away often enough we soon find ourselves lost.

I’m not going to wish you great peace and health and happiness in 2017 even though I want these things for you. Instead I am going to wish differently for you this year. 

This year I wish for you to be strong, stronger than you have ever been. I wish that you have the strength in 2017 to stand face to face with loss, sickness and disruption in yourself or those you love and say “I’m not running away any more! I am accepting life, ALL OF IT! I am in charge of only my thoughts and nothing else and my thoughts will always reflect my commitment to love and live without boundaries or blinders.”

“I shall refuse to label something unfair or negative or hopeless. I shall label it all as …life. I am on a path whose direction and destination are well known to my spirit and I shall fear no obstacle in my path.”

Yes, in 2017 I wish for you to be that strong because I love you.
