Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to a fulfilling and fantastic 2018.

I am not a big believer in New Years’ resolutions as I’ve learned over the years that many of them just aren’t that successful (at least for me…). But this year as I was contemplating the New Year I thought I would make some resolutions. So here goes…

My Resolution to Do Opposites!

I resolve to keep my eyes wide open to the wonders of the world we live in. Wide open to see the smiles of my wonderful grandchildren and children and wide open to see the happiness around me.

I resolve to keep my eyes shut. To keep my eyes shut when I’m praying. My eyes shut when I am thinking and reflecting on the many positive things in life.

I resolve to care more. To care more about the people that matter.

To care more about those in need and to care more about life!

I resolve to care less. To care less about things! To care less about the trivialities that at times weigh me down and to care less about things I cannot control.

I resolve to be strong. To be stronger in my faith. To be strong in my relationships with others and to be strong for those that may be weak.

I resolve to be mild. Mild in my relationships and when I deal with others and mild in my thoughts, that they may be filled with more patience.

When I thought about resolutions of opposites the list could go on and on but I think I’ll stop here and let you fill in your own blanks if you choose to.

Happy New Year, God Bless,
