Hey There Shiny!
By Gina Valley
I love a fresh start.
I love Mondays. I love moving. I love New Year’s.
Fresh starts are the best. That feeling of a new beginning is so appealing to me.
We’re nearly a week into the New Year, and I’ve still got that giddy, new start feeling. Granted part of that’s, because, as we’re currently traveling, I decided to start my New Year routine after I return home. But, most of that feeling springs from the reminder that with effort, nearly anything is possible.
I like to use this time of year to remind my children that they were made with a purpose, to be part of great things, and that they matter and can make a difference. This is a great time of year to encourage them to shine brightly, as they were created to do.
I hope you remember that’s true for you and your loved ones, too.
Do you find the New Year an encouraging time for a fresh start? How are you shining this week? Shoot me a comment. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it!
