Here’s to #PositiveVibesOnly! It’s my hashtag of the year and I’ll use it going into 2017. It’s easy to get sucked into negativity; negative energy, negative news…but that’s not only damaging, it drains you. This year I learnt how to separate myself from that energy and I’ve never had so much more clarity about the direction I want my life to take. Granted, just like everyone else, I have days when I get downtrodden, but the difference is that I’m now AWARE of it and therefore able to get myself out of that funk. It takes a while sometimes, but I find a way, because there’s always a way! Stay positive, stay centred:

When night turns to day,
And your youth starts to fade,
Centre yourself.

When all’s said and done,
When you’re captured and burnt,
Centre yourself.

When the quake shakes beneath,
When it’s too cold to sleep,
Centre yourself.

When you’re out in the world,
Alone and unfurled,
Centre yourself. (Poetry by Janet)

    😘 Centre Yourself. Those words have walked with me since the morning of reading this post. It was beautiful but mostly powerful. And I’m learning to Centre Self. Hehe almost sounds like self-centered 😃 but no it isn’t. Plus you write so beautifully and every post is so rich with life. Thank you. God bless you. God keep you. May His face shine upon you. And I think it’s still okay to say Happy New Year! 🌹

    True. Turning darkness into light…
    What a coincidence as I had also touched on getting back to centre in a poem today, and my first time to make a poem public. Perhaps it’s the universe’s message for 2017.
