It is exactly 5 days until the New Year, and I am so glad to be able to surround myself with people that I love.
Do me a favor and take a moment of your time, just 5 minutes or so, and reflect on what your expectations of other people are. What is it that you can do to make this world a better place? Let's start with the person in the mirror. If we each take a moment to think about what it is that we contribute to this place we call home, and then take the necessary measures to ensure that we are, in fact, making some kind of positive contribution - then we are good to go!
There are several questions that I have asked myself. What kind of person am I going to continue being? Are you a giver or a taker? Because if you are the one always on the receiving end, instead of reaching out and giving/helping others, then perhaps in 2009 that is something one can work on...I'm just saying....
Laugh a little harder. Close your eyes and take a deep breath and try loving a little deeper. Just try it. It doesn't hurt. It heals!
Until next time,
