The lotus flower is a symbol of ephemeral life, a precious gift. Make 2017 a year of increased mindfullness, so you embrace the present, the gift of life each day, and live according to what is important to you. Remember too that it takes more energy to hang on to negative emotional experiences than it does to let them pass. Blossom freely positively and enjoy what unfolds each day.
PS A helpful exercise may be to list what is important and rank in order of importance. Then each day check to make sure you are giving your time, attention and energy to those things on the list.
