CELEBRATE – COMING FULL CIRCLE

MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.
MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.

According to the American Heritage Dictionary the meaning of the phrase coming to full circle is: When something “comes full circle,” it completes a cycle, returns to its beginnings.

I am celebrating that as this new year of 2016 begins I have come full circle.

full circle

I chose last year as my word to define my life in 2015 light hearted.  Things went well until early spring and then a series of heart breaking event occurred in my life.  As each event happened, it became increasingly more difficult to cling to even a shred of a light hearted attitude toward life.  I found myself at the end of 2015 feeling very glum and being very sure I did not have the emotional resources to change my attitude.   But I tried.  And I am here to celebrate that I have come full circle.  Although I have chosen another word to define my life this year, I am starting this year with the same attitude as last year.  I am willing to be open to the possibility of letting my heart be light on a daily basis.

Wishing you a light heart in 2016,

Bernadette

P.S.  My word for 2016 is PERSEVERANCE

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. I’m glad that you have found some peace at the end of 2015, Bernadette. As Julieanne writes, we don’t know what the next day will bring, so hanging on to a word that hugs might be what gets us through the dark. “Perseverance” can help us all stick to what’s needed. Happy New Year to you all through the year!

  3. I hope this year is better! I too had kind of the same type of year! I then ended up just being down and sad! I am trying to pick myself back up and start this year off happy! I hope we can both make this a light and happy year! If you ever need a shoulder or ear, email me any time! Love Lynn

  4. To Perseweer, as my mother in law often said; needs fortitude in buckets. Some need more courage than others, as they are challenged so terribly hard by what life puts in the way, while others go unscathed. My dear departed Father said “We need the rubbish to recognise and appreciate the good stuff”. You perseweer very well… Heres to 2016 with a little less perseverance required.😇
