Happy New Year!
Full of promise and wonderful possibilities…
The New Year presents itself
as a blanket of fresh, fallen snow…
crisp and new
ready to take shape…
Like most of us
I contemplate a year of change
with wide-eyed wonderment.
in any aspect of your life
requires more than stars in your eyes…
How about perseverance
and the most challenging of all~
“Rome wasn’t built in a day.”
“I rest, therefore I rust.”
“Even the best writer had to erase.”
Keeping our attention on the prize
we tend to lose sight of life’s balance~
and therein lies the catch.
Viewpoints on life are either
glass half-full or half-empty
In the immortal words
of Winnie the Pooh’s friend, Eeyore:
“We can’t all,
and some of us don’t.
That’s all there is to it.”
Uncertain of what the future holds…
I am comforted by what I DO know:
“Not to go forward is to go backward.”
Learning to finally fly on my own is exhilarating…
standing my ground
is truly liberating,
…and discovering that I may grow up
without growing “old”
only reinforces the fact that
everything old IS new again.
Seize the moment!
Grab every opportunity
afforded to you..
there will always be signs
to guide you.
I suppose taking life a little less seriously
is on the top of my “to do” list for the New Year…
and reminding the “superwoman” inside
who thinks she can do it all…
to present herself less often.
To the “big kid” inside of me…
there is no reason to hide anymore.
This time around “I” will lead the way~
throw caution to the wind
…and put a smile in my heart whenever possible.
Who knows what the future holds?
Happy New Year!
