Happy New Year Everyone!

Sorry I'm a little late but I wanted to take a moment and say "hi" to my F-list and wish you a year of finding your own "Magic Moments".  LIVE  BIG and take risks my friends and dare to make mistakes.  Psst...stop and learn to appreciate the little things as well. 

My New Year's wish was inspired by a link re-tweeted on TWITTER by Cassidy Freeman that I thought deserved to be spread around.

The Magic Moment

" We have to take risks. We can only truly understand the miracle of life when we let the unexpected manifest itself.

Every day – together with the sun – God gives us a moment in which it is possible to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day we try to pretend that we don’t realize that moment, that it doesn’t exist, that today is just the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow. But if you pay attention, you can discover the magic instant.

It may be hiding at the moment when we put the key in the door in the morning, in the silence right after dinner, in the thousand and one things that all seem the same to us. This moment exists – a moment when all the strength of the stars passes through us and lets us work miracles.

Happiness is at times a blessing – but usually it’s a conquest. The magic instant helps us to change, drives us forward to seek our dreams. We shall suffer and go through quite a few difficult moments and face many a disappointment – but this is all transitory and inevitable, and eventually we shall feel proud of the marks left behind by the obstacles. In the future we will be able to look back with pride and faith.

Poor are those who are afraid of running risks. Because maybe they are never disappointed, never disillusioned, never suffer like those who have a dream to pursue. But when they look back – for we always look back – they will hear their heart saying: “What did you do with the miracles that God sowed for your days? What did you do with the talent that your Master entrusted to you? You buried it deep in a grave because you were afraid to lose it. So this is your inheritance: the certainty that you have wasted your life.”

Poor are those who hear these words. For then they will believe in miracles, but the magic instants of life will have already passed.

Happy Canada Day!

To my fellow Canadians... I hope you have a great day celebrating our country's 142nd Birthday.  Where I live all the festivities and fireworks have been cancelled because of the city workers strike and my other half has to work but we are still going to have some fun wearing red and white.   

Showing my pride under the cut....*grins*
Never take yourself too seriously :) )

I wanted to take a moment to wish all my Chinese friends and friends from other Asian counties who celebrate the Lunar New Year of the Ox.   May your year ahead be prosperous indeed and that you are blessed with many "red envelopes."
