Happy New Year to You!
I hope you are starting your year with new hope and vision no matter what you are going through. My experience is that it takes awhile to decompress from the holidays. So if you’re lagging, cut yourself some slack, and give yourself some time to reflect and recommit to what it is that you want for the New Year. Join me as we head out on a walk, jump on a machine or turn up the music and move while we chat about purpose and pave a path for this New Year in 2022. My video is about 12 minutes long so if you don’t have time now, join me later or scroll down for the cheat sheet to get you off to a great start.
Let go of the past
Dream your goals into action
Commit and take flight
According to some The number 6 is a perfect number as it is the sum of all of its divisors. It stands for love, harmony and balance. The house number 6 means responsibility, security and leading a peaceful life at home. So let’s get ready for a fabulous New Year make the most with what it brings us.
In a nutshell my the video talks about the following if you don’t have time to listen.
Steps for Defining What you what for the New Year:
- Know your Purpose: what makes you tick, why are you here, what is important to your and your well being, what do you want this year?
- Write it down: in a letter as if it has already happened in the affirmative. (see mine from last year at the end).
- Burn what you want to Let Go of: Write down all of the things that you want to let go of and burn them up (see the burning bowl exercise below)
- Remember Obstacles are part of life so cut yourself some slack and get back up and Begin Again.
- Who we are is love so be kind to you give that out in the world.
- Set your Intentions and Affirm what you want and repeat them often so you create magic.
- Remember to Breath while you sit in meditation, stretch, yoga and or moment.
- Keep a Grateful Heart.
Here is my chicken scratch letter I wrote from last year and just opened. Sometimes I make separate categories but it really didn’t matter because i was truly blown away that all of what I wanted came into fruition. Ok, maybe not that best seller book YET 🤣 but I did in fact have my book in my hand on Christmas morning before the end of the year. And my bathroom remodel is starting February 9th pending we get the money. Details, details but this is how we fire our desires and bring them into fruition. You may be afraid and feel intimidated and think this can’t happen to me but truly it can and it does even if you don’t think it’s possible. Just follow the steps and keep affirming your desires and take the human footsteps and you too will experience your dreams coming true.
In looking over the year, I see I really forged ahead in my writing and am trying to keep up on all of my social network platforms that were necessary at the time but I’m looking at more balance, reading books, while I continue my purpose of following my destiny which is to reach as many people as I can, to support them in their mission of following their light and love. I will also be submitting more poetry and truly get my book out in the world. I’ll keep you posted.
Speaking of reading, my friend Diana is running doing TBR writing challenge which looks really fun and right up my alley. Check it out here and maybe we’ll read you there too!
As promised here is the link for the Burning Bowl Post from last year if any of you would like to do it:

Thes days it is one day at a time for me most of the time. I am going to try my hand at learning to sketch. Chuck told me about a book that I ordered and it deals with understanding the right and left side of the brain as it relates to art.
I do love and get that Dwight. My 91 year old client says “to get up in the morning” and we laugh cuz it’s true. In the meantime he is on boards and just got back from NYC and is collecting farm equipment. I sooo love how you continue to grow. The book sounds fascinating and love the right and left brain connection. Maybe you can share it in one of your posts. I’ll put it in my pile for Diana’s contest 😂
Thanks Dwight! 🙏
Thank you Cindy! That is amazing to be active at 91! I am enjoying the book and have started working on the exercises in it. So interesting how our brain works!
You’re so welcome. I know he’s my inspiration. When he’s grumpy, i just make him do more push ups. 🤣. Oh I can’t wait to see it!! 💖🙏😘
This is the book Chuck recommended:
Oh this is great to have thank you! ❤️
Sorry I posted it twice. Just delete one. :>)
no worries 💖
I don’t let you things get to me like I use to back in the day
the holidays have been commercialized so much it’s just
another day any more.
That’s an awesome realization! It is very true and glad you enjoy your daily life-:) thanks for reading and your comment! 🙏🙌

Ok Rocky Balboa, you obviously had your Wheaties this morning! 🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️ LOL No, seriously these are some great motivational tips. Interestingly, I apply these tips on a daily basis, but with number 3, I burned my forgiveness list. I made a list of individuals I needed to forgive, prayed over the list and lit it until there was nothing left but ashes. Oh how liberating that felt. 🥰 Thanks for the Monday Motivation girlfriend!

Your post oozes with your exuberance and uplifting energy! I feel refueled in all my intentions for the year and inspired by the strategies you list. I appreciate the intrinsic values you make important for being kind and loving towards ourselves. A grateful heart truly is a magnet for abundance, I believe too. Thank you for sharing your letter – here’s wishing you that best seller when it can reach your world at a perfect perfect time! I agree you do have even a more precious book in your name this year 🙂
Cindy, I am humbled and grateful for your friendship. Thank you for the shoutout. I know you will get everything you want, especially the bestselling book. I will send good vibes your way. How did you know Rocky was my favorite movie?

Glad you could read my messy writing 🙏💖👏👏
Great tradition and so important to impart that with your whole family and share with friends.so very insightful ❤️🙏😘🤗❤️🩹
Thank you so much Marlene! I’m so glad you resonate with this and I so much agree! I appreciate your time and constant support!💖💖🙏🙏
That’s really informative post, Cindy.
Didn’t know the significance of number 6. I think I need to push little harder this year. You just woke up my brain cells😅
Thank you so much Ritish!
So happy to hear that, thank you so much. Yes and there is some hindi meaning to it as well. Alrighty my brainiac friend, I can’t wait to see how you fire these cells which you do so well! 💖💖💖
‘Brainiac’ haha! Just 2 brain cell died today morning as I accidentally added tea leaves and coffee powder together to my cup of ‘cofftea’ 😶
As far as I know there is significance of every number is astrology and religious beliefs. I think the number 6 are ruled by the hindu goddess of wealth and goddess of learning & arts.
OH NO!!! laughing 💖 Now thata was quite a combo. You must me flying high on a high.. 🤣
Yes and I think Lakshi is one of them who always seems to show up! 💖
Yes, its goddess Lakshmi and goddess Saraswati. 🙏🏻
Oh yes, how could I have forgotten Saraswati! Thanks Ritish! 💖🙏
Cindy, I plan to walk more this year. I am glad to see that you consider that exercise. 🙂 I spent some time over my break copying poems from my blog and putting them into 3-ring binders. I am less nervous knowing that I have paper copies. I have also worked on grouping the poems into chapters. At some time, I may put most of them into another book, but that is no rush.
I found this post inspirational. We have some unfinished business left over from last year, and I have found it difficult to look too far beyond that, but you got me thinking! <3 May 2022 be another productive year for you!
Oh that’s awesome Cheryl and I so do consider walking exercise and imperative really. We live in these bodies a long time so we best make them last and it’s one of the best things to do.
Wow! Good for you. That’s a great way to do that and now you have records. I like that idea of putting them into a binder which also gives them life in a tangible way. Good for you! It’s so important to get time to think like that, which can be tough with our busy days.
I’m really glad you found this inspirational, thank you so much for letting me know. Oh can’t wait to read it! 💖💖

Always a blast reading your blogs – chock full of so many different thoughts, ideas and info!

This post is so awesome! So full of inspiration and ideas of how to get going.
I am going to have to come back and refer to it often.
Wishing you a blessed week! ♥♥
Oh Ana Star, I’m really happy to hear that my friend. It must mean you are feeling ready an feeling better which is a great thing. You have a great one as well my friend! 💖
You giving a pep talk on the elliptical reminds me of David Goggins, lol. And it’s so cool to see you in video form, because that helps put a face to your account, and we all know how impersonal blogging can be sometimes. Loved this. And it’s inspired me to stay on track with my goals. Thanks for this, Cindy!
I liked the idea of writing things down on paper and letting them go by burning, Cindy. As I read your post, I couldn’t help but think what a good soul you are. Have a wonderful year. –Curt
Thanks for sharing, Cindy. The ski walker one of my favourite gym pieces. Happy Move It Wednesday.

Watched the video from start to finish. Girl, you rock.
As are our weekends, hubby and I went on our usual beach walk.
Now, done with an early dinner I’m sitting at my Kotatsu (a low table with a heater underfoot: very Japanese) and going through some posts I have pending. It’s impossible to read everything. Still I keep trying…
Anyway, adored this post. Loved listening to you. Wisdom. Thanks so much. I bless you. XoXo
Thank you sooo much Selma and how kind of you for sharing. Thanks so much for watching and your valuable comment!
Oh a beach walk sounds lovely and setting at your Kotatsu a meditative visual. I do know how hard it is for sure and I keep trying as well.
You are very dear and thank you dearly for your kind hearted comment! 💖🌈
