Happy New Year – Monday Motivation #1
Happy New Year
If you are reading this, we have survived the Mayan “end of days,” the 2012 holiday season, teetering on the edge of the “Fiscal Cliff” and now, New Year’s 2013.
By itself, those things feel like reason to rejoice.
But in 2013, I won’t let surviving be enough.
In 2013, Exalted Peacock and specifically, Heather, me, I vow to make the year completely radical.
Radical starts now
I began a journey last year of
finding my joy,
seeking my inner beauty,
and exalting that for myself and for everyone to see.
This year, I want to take that to the next level.
This year, I want to deliberately be a positive force in the world.
… … to bring others into the exaltation of themselves
… … … … and together, to spread positivity, confidence, love and self-esteem.
I am not the first
There are so many beautiful, poignant, profound, philosophical, uplifting people out there.
I will lean on some of them so that we might be reminded of the power that a group of positive people holds.
The American cultural anthropologist, Margaret Mead, once said
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
This year I plan on joining a growing group of people who simply:
SEEK the SPIRITUAL
NURTURE the SOULS
of the rest of us.
I will give and in the giving I will receive.
((I am so excited about it that I am nearly bursting))
So it begins
Who better to start with?
The firework pictured isn’t a star – it’s a star-burst.
I love that it’s just shy of the literal translation of what she said.
Marilyn Monroe is the first in a string of “Monday Motivation.”
This year there will be at least 52 motivating pictures and quotes coming from Exalted Peacock!
I will push them on (you guessed it) …Mondays.
But it’s Tuesday…
Stop pointing out my imperfections!
I am perfectly imperfect.
And so was Marilyn
And so are you
Besides it’s the first day of the new year..
I couldn’t wait for six whole days to begin spreading the good news
Shine on Marilyn!
And Keep on Twinkling on my Peacocks out there in the ether!
