And so we begin…
Another New Year of promises,
grand ideas of making it a better year
with intentions of starting
by making yourself a better you.
Time for those silly resolutions,
and yet for some,
they only prove to be
a huge pain in the ass
before the first week of the year
is even over.
We all make those dreaded promises
to become healthier and more physically fit
just to name a few.
We try to convince ourselves
that this will be the year
we not only conquer those requests
but we overcome them
and that for some delusional reason
it is what will make our lives
more enjoyable, prosperous
and maybe even better human beings.
I honestly believe that resolutions
should be things we don’t really have to strive for.
If in the past years
you were someone who comforted,
empowered or simply gave strength
to someone in need,
shouldn’t that be what you continue to do?
Although there is absolutely nothing wrong
with making yourself stronger and more healthy,
your heart and time
is the most important thing you can share with any other living soul.
In times of need,
it’s the strength of your convictions
that people around you
count on the most.
It is the one thing that doesn’t require you to set up an appointment
or schedule in.
It can happen at any given moment
with something as simple as a smile,
a quick call
or maybe just a kind word.
We are all more than capable of achieving this,
especially if we love the people in our lives
and feel compassion for those we don’t really know that well,
but in our hearts
and we must completely understand,
that it can be possible to change a little piece of someone’s day.
I honestly believe that when you empower anyone,
you unknowingly empower yourself
and I don’t really think
anyone has ever pulled a muscle
I realized years ago,
that making resolutions can be a wonderful thing,
but for myself, the most effective one I could make
was to be exactly who I have always been.
I have never had to work on, or change anything
when it comes to being a good person.
God has blessed me with amazing people in my life,
and if promising to be there for any of them
at any given moment is a goal I need to set,
than in three simple words…
I GOT THIS!
Being kind is something
we can all do every day of the year
and the best part is
you won’t even have to break a sweat!
So my friends,
now that you all know what my resolution is
and will forever be,
time to think of yours.
To each and every one of you,
I wish you the BEST YEAR EVER
and hope that you succeed
in whatever you decide to achieve!
Luv and Light Always,
*Happy New YOU 🙂 *
