Yes, today is the first day of 2013. A new year.
We are however still in the Chinese year of the Water Dragon.
I was born in the August, 1976. That is the year of the Fire Dragon. It is an extremely lucky sign to be born under. Every 12 years, there is a year of the Dragon and I amuse myself with how lucky I will be that year.
Now, I'm not saying I believe that I am one of twelve types of people. Leos never believe in that stuff :)
What I am saying is that since I believe it is my year and that my year will be full of luck, that gives me a positive view of the year. Maybe I subconsciously approach it in a different way that makes me a little bolder (yes, it is possible). Then I boldly go where no Mana has gone before.
As a Fire Dragon in the year of the Water Dragon, I knew it would get steamy and it did.
The year was full of winning moments. There was so much propulsion that many things happened that I had to stop and take in later.
Today as I sat in the Jolly Mont Centre waiting with a good friend catching a Murray's bus home after visiting me in Canberra, I joked about being easily amused by silly jokes and small wins. I said that I would always be happy because it didn't take much to make me so.
That is a key to happiness. Not needing something giant or overly important or drop dead hilarious to make your day. Laughing at myself and wonderful little moments is a sign that this dragon has enjoyed the steamy year.
In the upcoming year of the Water Snake, I shall let my Fire Dragon embrace the eel like year which is said to be the best year in which to start again.
I choose to start a new chapter and make it the best one so far.
