“New Year, New You” Event at Brielle Public Library

I’m so grateful to Brielle Public Library for hosting my “New Year, New You” event this past Saturday and to all the people who attended. The afternoon was one of family, friends, and strangers that became friends by the end of the event. I read excerpts from brielle library 14my new book, “Each Breath Along The Journey” and answered questions. It was an afternoon of motivation and inspiration for all of us.

I think I’m most grateful for this group of people that opened up and shared their own stories with everyone. The event was one I had hoped for: an interactive, up close and personal discussion to help inspire and motivate those that attended. I was most humbled by all the positive comments I received from all who attended and it was confirmation to me that this is what I’m meant to be doing on this journey of my life.

It was my goal to inspire this group of people, yet what they need to know is that they inspired and motivated me to keep writing and speaking to those who need someone to understand and listen, to make them feel less alone, and for those who just need a voice to spread positive vibes their way.brielle library 13

Thank you to all of those who attended “New Year, New You” this weekend. I am forever grateful that you took the time to spend the afternoon with me. It was a beautiful thing for me to watch as so many of you connected with one another.

I believe that this is the year of like-minded people coming together with kindness and support for each other. Imagine what we can do “together!”

It’s a good thing.

Wishing you love and light,

“The New Year’s Eve Mindset”

It’s New Year’s Eve, the last day of 2019 and the last day of the decade. At midnight tonight a new year and a new decade will be upon us: 2020! How exciting, how wonderful that we’re blessed to be here for this night, how amazing it is that we have a chance to start over, to have a new beginning in our life, to change our lives.

I believe in taking the life lessons of the old year into the new year, but I also believe that New Year’s Eve is a mindset. It’s another day, another month, and a new year, yet why do we put so much importance on changing our life on that one day? It’s because it’s tradition. It’s what people all over the world celebrate and we do, too. After all, it IS a new year and a new decade and that does deserve a celebration of its’ own.

My point is that we don’t need to wait until that one day to make changes in our life. We have the choice to change our mindset from waiting for that one day to one of embracing all the days in between to taking the steps to have the life we want and deserve.

Celebrate New Year’s Eve and the beginning of a New Year and New Decade.

And celebrate all the days in between.

It’s a good thing.

Happy New Year!

Wishing you love and light,

“New Year’s Eve – A Poem”

(An excerpt from “Each Breath Along The Journey)

“I sit here with my thoughts on New Year’s Eve

Wondering what I will take and what I will leave

It’s a brand new year, no mistakes in it yet

Filled with hopes and dreams still waiting to be met.

I’ve learned many lessons from the year that has passed

I’ve let go of some things that weren’t meant to last

I’m taking those lessons with me as I move on ahead

Negativity and drama are two burdens I will shed.

It’s all up from here with this new year in sight,

It’s time to bring to it my love and my light,

It’s time to make a difference in the life of another

It’s time to spread kindness to all of the other’s.

It’s time for dreaming, to hold onto the faith

That all things are possible, they’re just lying in wait

For us to grab onto them and do what we can

To make our life better and lend the world a helping hand.

So here’s to the New Year all shiny and new,

Here’s to all the great things that I know we can do.

Take all your lessons and the people you hold dear

And make this the most amazing of all your New Year’s.”

Happy New Year!

Wishing you love and light,

~Anne Dennish~
