Welcome to 2012
I have decided to shake off 2011. I’m not often pleased to see the back of a year but for so many reasons (some of which I talked about here), I am this time. Look at it, learn from it and then push on into all the glorious possibilities of a fresh-out-of-the-box year, is what I am going to do.
So with that in mind, when I recently saw this sign in a shop, I took it as, well….a sign (sorry, couldn’t resist).
This is what it said:
Life. Find a passion and pursue it. Fall in love. Dream big. Drink wine, eat great food and spend quality time with good friends. Laugh every day. Believe in magic. Tell stories. Reminisce about the good old days but look with optimism to the future. Travel often. Learn more. Be creative. Spend time with people you admire. Seize opportunities when they reveal themselves. Love with all your heart. Never give up. Do what you love. Be true to who you are. Make time to enjoy the simple things in life. Spend time with family. Forgive even when it’s hard. Smile often. Be grateful. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Follow your dreams. Try new things. Work hard. Don’t count the minutes, count the laughs. Embrace change. Trust in yourself. Be thankful. Be nice to everyone. Be happy. Live for today. And above all…make every moment count.
Kinda says it all, doesn’t it? If each one of us took on just one of these for this year, the world would be a better place. Why not pick out one or two and try living with that in mind? You never know what might happen!
