Happy New Year!
I, for one, couldn't be happier to bid farewell to 2010 and welcome in a new year, and a new start.
So many wonderful blogs out there have posted today, with wise and thoughtful reflections on the past year and the one to come (for a perfect example, see my friend's post for today, here ).
I don't know that I'm feeling quite as eloquent today, and I certainly couldn't say it better, so instead I will simply share a few of my own hopes for the year to come:
I hope to remember that every day is a new opportunity to set aside mistakes and misjudgements and move forward with new wisdom.
I hope to remind myself when I open my eyes each day that every sunrise brings another opportunity to be who I want to be.
I hope to remember that I am not responsible for everyone and everything, and that I don't want to be.
I hope I'll learn how to tap into my own inner peace, which I know is there, so that I can better handle the unexpected or volatile situations that come my way.
I hope to do what I can when I can, and to know when to step aside.
I hope that whatever comes my way, I will find it within myself to handle it with graceful acceptance.
And I hope that each and every one of you will see your own wishes, dreams and hopes fulfilled this coming year.
Happy New year! :)
