Because everyone has the right to be truly free and happy
“Let each year find you a better man” Benjamin Franklin
Tonight, as I prepare for another new year ahead, I would like to share with you my everlasting new years resolution.
I have given up long ago making a new wish for each year, for I have realised that the path to true happiness is not an annual event. It is a pursuit that may take a lifetime (or many lifetimes) of little steps.
For this reason, this year, like every year yet to come I shall make the same resolution. It comes from my thoughts about what I would like people to be saying about me at my funeral. I know, a bit of a sombre thought, but really, I would love to know that every year they saw me grow into a better person.
And therefore, my everlasting new years resolution is this:
I am determined this year to do all I can to make my:
Love a little wider
Kindness a little deeper
Thoughts a little less selfish
Mind a little more peaceful
Time spent a little more mindful
Energy a little brighter
Smiles a little more honest
Hugs a little warmer
Heart a little more joyful
Life, a little more authentic.
I also wish all of this for you, not only for this new year coming but for every single one after!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
