...of a 365 page book. Write a good one.



Every year is like a chapter of our lives.

The object of a new year is not a celebration of a new year, nor having a new number displaying in our callendar but it is where we should have a new soul.
To sit down and think over how to improve up our lives.
Also is not a day to cry out loudly how our past year was unsuccessful and impatiently wait when it will be over, start a new, but to learn who we are and how we can move forward.


I'm not here to wish a good New Year Eve since it's not the only day which will decide how our new year will be like… however what I truly wish you guys lots of joy for every day for this year, as well for next year- regardless what is the day or what's happening. Every day is a miracle and a proof of our existence.
Smile to yourself while looking at your image reflected by mirror and don't be shy to say "I love you" to yourself.  And lots of love to all livings forms, animals and nature and less interest to material objects.
Say to yourself...

I am myself, no one else.
The most unique existence on the earth.
Like all people are on our planet.
I am not going to compare myself and my life to anyone else (and art ;) )
Every one is different and has different destiny at Personal Legend.


I will not interfere at someone else's lives, even though I think they are doing something wrong and feel to poke in. Or if that bothers me. I will not poke my nose to someone else's problems unless I'm asked.
I will focus on my life, goals and my dreams. I will not live with other people's lives but MY OWN.

I will be able to help other people once I am able to help myself. Once I helped myself and became successful with my self happines in my life, I am able to inspire other people to get help from themselves first.

I will take care of myself what I am watching, what I'm reading and being a part of. Watching a TV bad news, catastrophes and scandals with politicians will only influence me negatively. Reading dramas on internet, being interested in negativies online, focus on what negative stuff people do instead positivity- I am feeding myself with negative energy to my subconsciousness regardless if I'm agreeing with it or not. I will take care of where I'm listening, focusing on and with what I'm feeding myself.
From now, I will feed myself with inspiring, positive people who bring good actions.

I will get positively inspired by successful ones, not dwell in jealously and wait when the successful one will fail for my own sake of satisfaction.

If I judge other people, I give the right for them to judge me.
It will become an endless exchange of our judgments, opinions and agressive conversations.
It's pointless.

(....)

I am one who is responsible for my own life, Personal Legend and  the only who can make my life happy.
I am a Warrior of Light, not a greedy princess who is waiting for a knight on white horse.

I'm smiling to you guys : )


EDIT: a few words about 2013.

DSC01726_zps735cd942-1_zpse45ff6a9

2013 will be a year of love. Thirteen is a number of as well what the old knowledge is trying to tell us. A lot of people fear the number, it's just a prejudice/fake belief brought by our civilization that 13 is an unlucky number and it's because people prefer to believe in fear than in love. In fact we fear to love. We have tendency to focus only on escaping and prevent bad things, events and failures to happen to us, than focusing on positive things.
That's why mostly in our west civilization we are somehow trained and even religion teaches us, is how to prevent the fear, from being bad and repel away the bad ones than teach of love love, the joy and respect to the Universe.
That's why I'm wishing to everybody to focus on what you love, not on what bothers you or on things which will ruin your dreams, love and goals. Bring it on!

Thank you for this very positiv journal. You have always inspired me over the years, or at least since I find out about DA XD Sadly it seems that there isn't enough positiv feelings for everyone on earth, no matter how hard we try to share those positives emotions. Hope 2013 will be a year of serenity and happiness to all of us :hug:

Thank you. I appreciate this and I am so grateful to you for posting it.

The affirmations ring so true... it was good that I saved your journal out of many to sit down and read when I had more time. 2013 will be a year of learning to love myself. Not in the narcissistic sense, but in the taking-care-of-myself sense.

I hope that you are able to freely pursue what you love and that you find much love returning to you in the process. Many thanks and lots of Light.

I really, really loved your journal. It's funny. I made the decision to change my negative attitude, too. I don't want to live with that anymore and I don't want the people I love and I will meet in the future take up with that.

Spreading love and joy is great! It is a honorable action, if you don't do it to please your own ego. I guess it will be difficult to defeat my own ego, who likes to see the negative aspects of life, but I really enjoy to see the wonders of life more!

Thank you for your honest journal entry! Reading that there will be at least one more person on earth (I guess there are a lot more people like that!), who wants to be more positive and spread love and joy, makes me really, really happy!

Wonderful advice and thoughts! I can especially relate to the thoughts about giving up jealousy. A few years ago I was jealous of some artists - not because they were better than me, but because they had fame and success doing art I considered shallow or low quality. Eventually I let go of my jealousy, and I started my new dA account with openness toward any art, since everyone has his or her own purpose for creating art. I feel so much happier! :D

You are most welcome. I would also like to add that I love the addition concerning the number thirteen and how it has truly become steeped in fear and superstition. It is a number that I have come to love and not fear. I find it a lucky number. Spread the positive we can make it all an amazing year.

Yeah and it's sill in my head since I was a child. It really helped me a lot in life. Reading inspiring books and meeting those inspiring people is a really great boost to help yourself in life. Personal legend thing is the best concept I've ever learned and so I practice it a lot in real life :D
Although, I have twitched it a bit in my own way.

I'm too staying alone this New Year eve, for almost the same reason you are, but instead keeping an eye for my dog, I'm keeping an eye at my fish, he's not well he's kinda ill and I chose to stay with him instead travel with my family, he's already 5 years old and it's like a dog to me, I'm not sad because I've made me some food that is the best food I've done in my whole life. Thanks for sharing some of your thoughts with us this made my New Year eve even better :)

What an amazing journal. All the words written here have shown inspriation and more positive in thinking to me. I now know more on what I can do with myself, follow my dreams and goals, and not be judged by other people just because of who I want to become in life. I agree with you, we are all unique in this world. We have our own personal beliefs and likes in this world. And today, we can celebrate a new year and become greater than we were before. Thank you for sharing this journal and a Happy New Year to you and everyone in the world! :heart:

Then again though, you are a very bright, tranquil and open minded artist sooooooo =P

I'm not huge into partying hard myself. Maybe every once in a while I like doing stuff like that but the majority of the time I usually enjoy the company of my parents, my brother, my White Retriever, my epicsauce cat, my art and most importantly, me :D

Have an exciting and super positive year!
Along with anyone reading this ;)

That's why I don't write a lot due to lacking of time and it's sometimes frustrating even though I have a lot things to say..

Oh. That is a serious pain >.< ..
What about your national language? :o
My best friend actually happens to speak your tongue too
but it also takes him a long time to write as well.

Even though I can write, I seem to really struggle trying to explain what
is going through my head too, even through talking..

New Years eve? :ohnoes:
Damm. I could use a time travel communications laptop >8C
jk =P
Where I am, it's about 1:28 mins until 2013 :D

I'm raised as "Gypsy" so I don't have native language or roots. Technically as for Gypsy person, "native language" is English. But currently I know both Polish and English that I'd feel comfortable.

That's why leading a Gypsy lifestyle has not allowed me to have stable growth with language and writing, that's why it has effected me with dislextic issues with the art of writing. I'm really battling with it and I DO want to get better at writing especially I have naturally skills for it but I can't wear it into words correctly.

Hi!

I just happened to pass by and read your journal entry. I just wanted to tell you that this is one of the best posts I've read this year (2012, Finland still has 2 minutes left of it). :) I really wanna hold onto some of your thoughts and try to make year 2013 good for me and others around me.

And I really wanna believe that next year is year of love! :D

I'm about 50 mins to New Year.
