I’m not one for resolutions. I try to be the best version of myself every day because let’s face it, tomorrow isn’t a guarantee.
While I was out shopping a few days ago, I overheard some young women preparing for their New Year’s Eve night out and it made me smile. I couldn’t help but reflect on how differently we looked at the upcoming holiday. It made me pause and think about what life was like for me back in 1989 when I was 21 years old and how life is for me now at 48 years of age.
Outside of these obvious changes in the way I think, I am committed to continuing to practice the mantras I have found useful in my day to day living.
What I have is what someone else wants
So be grateful for all of it. All of it.
Forgive everyone, even the fuckfaces. Especially the fuckfaces.
Forgive myself. I’m human. I make mistakes. I probably should start by not calling anyone a fuckface.
There is an infinite amount of love in the world and I am blessed with a massive capacity to love. Eventually, I believe, this love will outweigh the hate. I believe it.
I wish you and your loved ones a blessed New Year’s of gratitude, peace, love and always paying it forward.
