What a complex year 2016 has been!

For so many people around me, 2016 has been the year of THE NEW. Whether it meant new decisions, new changes, new challenges, new people, 2016 simultaneously brought a new shift for everyone.

Some of these changes are just what we dreamed of and some are just hard to accept, but as Rick Warren says: “Every temptation is an opportunity to do good.”

Every step of the way we have the opportunity to choose the attitude with which we receive the change and the opportunity to act upon it with grace and love, in a manner that won’t alter our character and our integrity…

Character & integrity… these two traits seem to be more and more precious.

Having this said, 2017 will probably be the year to build on these new changes, to direct the growth of these changes in a direction that will truly benefit us all and maybe even be more open to changes.

So I say: dare to have a vision! Dare to imagine your new life into reality. Be more aware of your thoughts and your words, cultivate true and meaningful relationships with the people around you, be your very best self whatever you are doing, set an example and be an inspiration.

Stay healthy and happy!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

  1. Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to you, Ioana! I hope that your Christmas holiday was festive and joyful. Thank you for this inspiring post. 2017 seems to be ushering in a great deal of change in my life, and I am constantly reminded that no matter how good, how exciting, how healthy, or how positive a change is, there is always some element of loss, grief, or pain. That is what it is to be fully human and fully alive, I think. I am trying to focus on the positive and all the opportunities for growth and authenticity, while still acknowledging and validating the painful parts of these experiences. I am hoping that your NEW Year is richly blessed. Hugs!
