Happy New Year! Here’s my New Year’s Resolution. I’m sorry my thoughts occasionally spill out in poetic melodrama. You may enjoy it more while eating a block of Velveeta.
To time, to each other, to connections
To relax, to live, to care
Just laughing through the imperfections of life
Doing the best we can, when we can
No guilt. No stress. No comparing.
We are who we are
Saying “no” more often, to be able to say “yes” more often
Yes to margin in our lives
Yes to unwinding
Yes to creativity
Yes to dances in the kitchen
Yes to jigsaw puzzles
Yes to one more book
Yes to boardgames after dinner
Yes to dandelion bouquets
Yes to friends who love you just the way you are
Yes to loving others just the way they are
Not perfectly, just authenically
To let go, to take in, to give away
To listen, to share, to know
To the moments, to the laughter, to that feeling of home.
To gratitude, to purpose, to love.
*Peace, love, hugs, and cheese my friends, Shelisa*
