No 02 11-29-19 “See Clearly in 2020”
Happy New Year and Happy Year 2020, the New Roaring 20’s!
Our motto this year at Arthur Murray Santa Monica is:
“See Clearly in 2020. Make all your dancing dreams come true!”
What a wonderful theme for a new year, a new decade, a new beginning!
With this being the time for personal reflection and pledging new resolutions. I have found that many friends have made exciting new goals. In my professional world, everyone I ask tells me some new, exciting mark to hit in the new year and decade. I am greeted with enthusiasm and passion for living a happy, healthy, and prosperous life.
On the other side, there are many who do not have New Year’s Resolutions. They do not have goals and great things that they are look forward to. They have discovered that they or a family member or friend is ill. They have had a recent loss and just went through the holidays for the first time without a partner, friend, or family member. Some were sick throughout the entire holiday season. We’re not all the same and in the same place in life.
For me, I spend the last 8 weeks of the year busy as a bee and not taking any time off. So many great opportunities came our way and we said yes to everything we could squeeze in. On the Friday before Christmas, we went to a midnight dinner and just took a huge breath before returning the next day to do a bit more work to finish the year.
We reached Christmas Eve where we served 3 masses at St. Monica Parish in the Hospitality Ministry. We were there 2:30 PM to 9:30 PM and we were a part of the 11 masses for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The experience of serving when thousands of visitors came to our parish was truly rewarding a great blessing.
Christmas Day the kitties opened their stockings and then we headed to Christmas at Disneyland, simply magical experience in every way! We were then back at Arthur Murray Thursday the 26th preparing for the 2020 new year.
Seeing clearly depends on the eyes of the individual person. If you have a clear 2020 Vision, share it with others and inspire and uplift them. Perhaps you are not seeing so clearly at this time of year. You may be sad, depressed, and in need of some encouragement. To you I say, “It will get better” and when the time is right, your “life vision” will improve and you’ll see the light at the end of the dark night of the soul.
Go out today and try to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Help them realize their dreams and to give them light and hope and clarity.
Thanks for reading,
Keep on Dancing!
