Retreats and the Chinese New Year

Retreat is taking time to pause in order to start afresh. The 2013 Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February 10.  It will be the year of the water snake and green is going to be the color of the year. On this happy occasion let me share with you some wonderful quotes about beginnings.

"You will never win if you never begin." - Robert H. Schuller 

"The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings." - Dave Weinberg 

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started." - Sally Ber 

"Celebrate endings - for they precede new beginnings." - Jonathan Lockwood Huie 

"Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect." - Alan Cohen

"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." - Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Taking a spiritual retreat is one great first step. Trust that the rest will just follow to be able to move forward and charge ahead.

Transitions - ending phases of one's life  in order to experience beginnings- is precisely the main theme of the mini retreat (recollection) that will be held on March 16, 2013 in Quezon City. This recollection-workshop is entitled "ROAD TRIP: FINDING GOD IN YOUR LIFE'S JOURNEY" (Based on a retreat by Joyce Rupp, author of Dear Heart Come Home, with insights from William Bridges, author of Transitions.) 

Choose not to be alone in taking your life's journey. It is always best to have a trusted guide and the right company in this special journey. May we all start the New Year renewed and invigorated.
