musings on life, love and laughter from my spoken heart to yours

…and a new chapter is about to begin…


Here we are at the end of 2012 and I feel optimistic about 2013, it is the beginning of a new chapter. I believe this is going to be a year of change, new starts, growth.  I am hopeful.

However the thing with new beginnings is that they always mean something else is ending. It is the way cycles go. It is the way of seasons, the way of transitions. Death and birth, beginning and end.

I want to live my life in such a way that I can look back at that which is ending and smile because it has enriched my life. I want to be able to let the old pass with tenderness and smiles. I do not want to cling to it, afraid to let it go, rueing the days gone by because they were void of whatever it is I was seeking. But rather I want to be happy to carry a piece of it with me without having to hold on. To carry it just because it is now a part of me. To hold in my heart those golden nuggets of learned truth, of lessons that have bettered me and made me stronger, wiser, more whole.

My wish for 2013 is that it is a year of potential found. Every year is an opportunity of new potential, but so often it is missed potential. So often we cannot see the forest for all the trees. We need to seize the opportunities that lay before us, not let fear, uncertainty and self doubt cloud our vision.  We need to walk head high, with certain feet, and just know that everything always works out in the end, that sometimes life is messy but that it’s ok because mistakes make us stronger and wiser.

That is my wish, my hope, my prayer for 2013.

  1. I think we will be having a grand year Andrea. I think we will continue on with some of our growing … at times be frustrated of course….but overall … I cannot help but think we will have lots more good than bad.

    Wishing and your family all good things. *hugs*


  2. I won’t get political, nor melancholy. I just want to wish you and your family the brightest 2013. Thank you for your lovely posts throughout the year, I am so glad I started following you 🙂


  3. I wish for you to have the year you wish for.


  4. Endings are good if you can learn from them, I know that no matter if it’s a good or bad ending what I take from the experience makes new chapters better. I have a feeling 2013 will be a good one, happy new year!


  5. There are no beginnings, and no ends.
    As all is part of the one, so there is only eternal change.
    If a loved one dies, they also live on, in their children
    In their consequences, in our memories
    And the parts of us shaped by them.
    To mourn a passing is to not see the ongoing
    May you flow freely through this continuity in 2013
