Happy New Year! During this time of year, we can feel a call to change and start anew. We can find ourselves no longer able to ignore the whispers of our hearts that encourage us to begin a new chapter in our lives. Some of us may begin a new diet or exercise program, while others take a leap of faith by changing careers or going back to school. Maybe we even feel called to start a new spiritual practice. Whatever it may be, we often feel great excitement in the beginning. But further through the journey, as we start to face obstacles we may begin to doubt ourselves and our abilities. We may ask ourselves if we really want to continue. We may question if we are strong enough to make the changes we seek. We could even find ourselves forgetting why we started in the first place. At these moments, remembering the great distance you have already traveled can reassure you that you have the strength to persevere further. This week we are given the energy and inspiration to begin a new path, and also the Divine Assistance to overcome obstacles that may appear along the way.
