After a horror 2012, I am determined to do things differently this year. I aim to look at life in a spiritual way and not be taken in by the physical aspects of this planet. That includes the dramas that people create.
When my first grandchild was born, three weeks ago, things changed. I now endeavour to live in the moment because these ‘moments’ don’t come by again.
I start each day with deep breathing exercises and listen to some calming music at some point during each day.
I think it must be working because I feel calmer and more at peace.
Life is often hectic and stressful but by concentrating on the spiritual energy around me, I can find the good amongst the chaos.
And so, I bid the Year of the Dragon, adieu, and in this year of the Snake, I leave you with a favourite quote.
In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away. – Shing Xiong
