It is hard to believe that once again we are starting a new year. Most likely we are all still spinning from the end of the year celebration, and just the speed at which 2014 flew by. I’d like to slow down this new year, but I know that isn’t possible. Sadly the faster it speeds by, the older I get, and the older I get, the slower I get, and the faster the year speeds by. No wonder my head is spinning!
With holiday decorations taken down, and all of us working at getting back to normal, it is my hope that all of you will have a very prosperous, exceedingly healthy, wondrously happy 2015…..
Last year my catch word (In place of a resolution) was ” kindness!” In spite of my grandkids telling me that I was already to kind, & not to be any kinder, I chose to work at kinder thoughts, and demonstrating more kindness.
This year my word is going to be “tolerance!” Sometimes it is really difficult to be tolerant of others. They may be slower than we are, or maybe even faster. They may have a different way of doing things than we do, or maybe they come off as being entitled. I frequently tell myself, unless we can walk in each other shoes, we haven’t any idea how their life is, or what hurdles they may have to endure. Things aren’t always as they seem. Therefore, I’m going to really work at being a kinder, more tolerant person.
I hope everyone has survived the hectic end of 2014, and that whatever we all have in front of us will be challenges we welcome, and will make us stronger!
Happy New Year everyone…
