Coming full circle-- ZEN!
This year, my resolution is to stay on the straight path to POSITIVE thinking and rise above all the negativity/negative forces around me.. This year--- I will NOT succomb! I will let NO negativity -
people or things- darken my doorstep! I only want the good!
Sooooo... I have resumed my YOGA practice and meditation in a serious and conscious way... and I am paying attention to the light and energy from within...
Namaste and Happy New Year to you All!!
I totally forgot to post about this grande fete in France-- It's the EPIPHANY, the day when the Three Wise Men came to visit the new Baby Jesus and to bestow him with gifts. The galette is a tradition here in France as well as the gateau des rois, which is more traditionally eaten in the south of France... and is a brioche, not a galette. So, here is mine for this year.. it was VERY VERY YUMMY- to the last crumb... We had our galette On Friday evening with Animesh and Ajali, because Anjali was leaving on Sunday. I found the feve, or little cute favor in my slice, but passed it over to Anjali, so she could be crowned QUEEN! It was all great fun!

HAPPPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
I am honestly HAPPY to ring in a BRAND NEW YEAR today.. HONESTLY, these past two years have been the most challenging ones I've passed through since my mom was sick and departed in 2005!
I am soo grateful for my dear friends and my hubby who have helped me get through this very difficult and transitional time.. I don't know what I would have done without all the moral support I got from everyone.
Over the past few months... I have decided to make some big changes in my life, in my physche' and to do a realllly thorough cleaning- my spiritual house and my heart, in particular... so that I can really be
content, happy and at peace with my life.
So, I will take the New Year and make it mine- and I will start my mission today- as it's the first day of the New Year.. to devote time to be more Zen and peaceful. To live in the moment, in the NOW and to utilize my inner strength to get things accomplished throughout my day.
I am grateful. I express my gratitude to a positive energy force that is bubbling up within me and I am ready!
So, as we start a New Year--- I wish you all much PEACE and HARMONY in your hearts, in your lives.... as you go out in your day.... May this NEW YEAR bring you what you need to be strong and full of LOVE.
