"You gotta be willing to take the hits..."
2015 is here. I salute you for getting here. Hell, I salute anyone who got here.
We don't give ourselves enough credit for the journey. We always want the goal.
Well, here's to the journey...remember to relish each and every step.
This is also the time of year where resolutions abound - I tend to make them as the year goes on but for tradition's sake I'll give it my best shot.
- I will listen more, and talk less
- I will write till I am sick of it then I will write some more
- I will be as fit as I possibly can - sole reason for being there for those around me
- I will attempt to find balance in all things, life, work, and play
- More green veggies
- READ more
- LAUGH more
- SMILE more
- I will keep moving as best as I can. I find moving makes all of the other resolutions easier
- I will be myself to the best of my ability and apologize to no one
- I will give more of my time
- I will work on patience for all things
- I will dream more
- I will say I love you more
These are short list items....most of us have them as a To Do.
As we stand at the precipice of 2015, we stick our toe in the water to see what we are in for - truth is, we have no idea. We find comfort in the fact that will embrace the same old routine as we did last year but if you look back it wasn't exactly the same now was it?
Spread your arms and dive in.
2015 will be ours for the taking. We will own all of the victories and all of the bruises.
We will have patience with the baby steps forward, and we will have hope with the major steps backward.
We will laugh more.
We will cry more.
We will know that we make a difference to one or many.
We will lend a hand and a heart.
We will not ignore a cry for help.
We will know that there is work to be done in life.
We are willing to work on ourselves because the best 'you' that you can be makes this world a place worth saving....
Enjoy your accomplishments.....more to come....2015. Own it.
Have a happy and safe New Year...
I appreciate you and I am thankful for all that you are.
