I am excited about this year. I am a horse according to the Chinese Calendar.
I believe that regardless of the forecast for the year according to horoscopes or customs it is up to the individual experiencing the year to determine if its a good year or bad.
When many tragedies and set backs happen within a given year it is often said "this was a bad year". Yet who makes that determination ?
If you made it through, took a chance, did your best, and stepped out in faith whose to determine that your year was bad ?
It's you. It's up to you to interpret how you see a circumstance, your life and/or your year.
So let's say you decide to embrace the concept that this New Year is a year of prosperity. Do you then just sit back and say " ok universe, show me prosperity" ?
Do you ?
Or do you decide to do all that is within your power TO DO to ensure this year is prosperous for you ?
That is up to you.
Happy Chinese New Year
