In a few days the year 2014 will be in the history books, and the glass will be half empty or half full depending on which glass you pick up for 2015. So many glasses to choose from in a New Year.
Time to shed the skins of what ifs and buts and the Three Stooges of couldas, wouldas and shouldas. What’s done is done. We can’t change 2014, but we will have a new opportunity in 2015 to make amends for our transgressions and forgive ourselves as we forgive others, to celebrate our achievements and victories won in the past year as we remain committed to each other and to the causes we support.
In this world of too much information bombarded relentlessly in cyberspace every day, can we somehow manage to maintain an up close and personal connection to the people who matter in our lives; and can we be warriors for kindness in 2015 and set good examples in our homes first and then our communities and then our nation so that the news is better for everyone.
In a nation of plenty may we find food for the hungry, walls for the wind and roofs for the rain for the homeless, laughter and joy for the chronically ill; comfort for those who grieve, and hope for those who struggle with the demons of doubt and depression. These are our opportunities for the New Year and Resolutions that will transform our lives and the lives of others.
No need to wait for 2015 – the glass is half full already.
We can start today. Be kind to one another.
Thank you so much for stopping by to spend time with me here in the past years. I appreciate your comments and visits and Teresa and I wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and a New Year of promise with whatever glass you choose.
