First Post of 2018

New Year’s Day is one of my favourite days throughout the year. It’s a day of hope. 365 days of wondrous possibilities ahead and that means anything, anything is possible. I was going to write a post about some of the lessons I learned in the past year but that soon had me bored. Life is filled with lessons, always has been. If we’re lucky we recognize some of those lessons for what they are and move along. So I wanted to keep this first post of 2018 short, maybe share with you a bit of wisdom that came to me before Christmas in way of an email called “Note from the Universe.” There were three things that came in the email and I loved each one of them. I hope you do too.

  1. Give thanks that your life is exactly as it is.
  2. Decide that 2018 will be the happiest year of your life yet.
  3. Every day, follow your heart and instincts down new paths. 

I wish you all the very best that life brings your way. I hope you meet all the challenges ahead with a sense of wonder and determination, and maybe you’ll keep these three things in mind as you go forward.

Happy New Year!

  1. I love those three things and will keep them in my mind and my heart all year long. Thanks!!


  2. Laura, this is a motivational first post for 2018, despite its brevity. 🙂
    1. I know that no matter what my situation is, God has it all in hand and I need only trust and wait.
    2. I decided that 2018 is my year to shine.
    3. That’s a hard one as change can be quite difficult for me, but I have a goal, so I’m going to make a determined effort.

    All the best to you and yours in this new year full of potential.


  3. Those are three excellent points to keep in mind. I hope your year is one of many fulfilled possibilities. 🙂


  4. Happy New Year Laura! I do hope this is (your) happiest year yet!
