Here's to an action packed and fulfilling year to you all. I think its fair to say that the festive season was a well-earned and deserved break because 2015 was certainly relentless. The entire Miss Salon London team wishes you a fabulous year ahead. And a big thank you for always choosing us. New Year well wishes can be so hollow sometimes and full of empty pleasantries in spite of our best intensions. They reminds me of the pleasantries you always hear people exchange and we often feel obliged to say things like "Lets do lunch soon" because it sound pleasant. Perhaps that's a good place to start for the new year, a resolution to try an engage more deeply, meaningfully and honestly. So let me go ahead and say what I really want to say as I wish you a happy new year with the help of a meme I recently came across. It simply said "To my friends, I wish you peace, love and health. Blah, blah, blah…screw that! I wish you lots of sex, booze, orgasms and hope you win the lotto". LOL! That one really made me laugh.
Resolutions are a big one too right now because we use the festive season to reflect on our lives. I'm certainly guilty of entertaining the idea of resolutions with disclaimers that say "No pressure" and "Subject to change" because as information changes so is our tendency to change our minds. Here are a few quotes that stood out to me that I though would be good to live by, for now.
“You have 365 new blank pages. What will you write on the first blank page?” Lailah Gifty Akita. Wonderful words that suggest an adventure awaits you every single day. So lets find the confidence to climb to new heights.
And as you aim for your goals this year remember the words of Ayn Rand - "The question isn't who is going to let me, it's who is going to stop me". Be unstoppable ladies!
And lastly "We must let go of the life we have planned, to accept the life that is waiting for us" - Joseph Campbell. That has healing connotations for me and signifies letting go of what was, to embrace what is to be. So make it your own.
Cheers to a gracious 2016!
P.S. Emoji included. :-)
