We all want hope, good fortune, better relationships, etc etc in the coming year.
The grass always looks greener on the new calendar. Our happiness comes from within. We cannot expect others to make us happy. Our future, is our own journey. We help others along the way, and they help us, but in the end it is our responsibility.
Wanna lose weight? Do it. Wanna sing? Do it. Wanna help the homeless? Do it. Wanna help animals? Do it. Resolutions are good, but motivation of love is a real enforcer of good.
Start with ourselves first. What do I want? What do I need? What do I love? Don't settle for less, keep your goals in your heart and move those mountains. Encourage one another, be kind, loving, and true to self. What more do we need? We all have had both good and bad times. Each year is a fresh start. Moving forward many times takes baby steps..We don't stay babies for long. We move to big strides. Smiling all the while. Let your smile be that rainbow that floats above you always. Know yourself, love yourself, be yourself, and always be kind.
