NEW YEARS 2008 The White Plate Ceremony

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with The Best Spot Realty/Waterfront Real Estate/Ooltewah Real E

HAPPY 2008 TO EVERYBODY.  I AM FREE FROM 2007!!!  The 2007 white plate ceremony is over, and I am free of the pains and dilemmas of 2007 and have made myself a 2008 affirmations plate.  It felt soooo good to go out there in the road and smash it to smitherenes.  Wonderful. It is now residing in the dumpster may it rest in peace!  For 2008 my plate has Health, Abundance, Peace, Love, Understanding, Parsimony, Prosperity and the names of several people that I wish to hold close in 2008.  For anybody that feels stuck, I highly recommend this as a very cathartic, cleansing excerse.  I know that it is just symbolic, but, it sure felt good to do and I do feel incredibly different and free.  Have a good one all and look forward to a prosperous new year.  You just have to believe it to make it so.

Sounds like you SMASHED in the New Year with a bang!  I always thought it would be as you say "cathartic" to smash glassware, but never actually did it.  Congratulations on doing it and with such direction!  Happy New Year!

I never heard of doing that - but it DOES sound like it would be a good way to say goodbye to the old year and bring in the new.  Happy New Year!

Gayle,

That is a great way to get out those old, tired and ugly issues that you survived in 2007. It is always good to start with a clean plate and make things better. Planning for success is the best way to achieve it. Have a great 2008!

What a unique and wonderful way to celebrate the New Year. I'll have to try that next year!  Back in 1970 we rented a home on Watt's Bar Lake so I'm pretty familiar with your area.
