Here it is New Year's Eve, the last day of the year. Part of me is always sad about another year gone by - mainly because I should have done more, seen more, learned more, wasted less time, become a better person, lived in the moment - sound familiar?
I do a lot of reflecting and thinking on this day - about what I want for the New Year - my hopes, dreams, expectations and desires for the next 365 days. I've decided on a word for 2011 - wanna see?
Kind to myself
Kind to others
This word kept coming up for me, sometimes once a day, sometimes more.
So this year I'm concentrating on taking better care of myself (should have done it LONG ago). To nurture and heal myself with kindness, every day. No more begin on Monday, or next week, or later. It's living and loving myself with every breath. I will practice and exercise kindness to others and increase my random acts of kindness throughout the year.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Plato
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. Dalai Lama
Do you have a word this year? If you do, please share it and why you chose it and if you don't - I hope you will feel inspired to choose one and share it with us. Thank you each and every one for ALL the kindness you have showered me with this year - I am very blessed indeed.
Love to you, Happy New Year !!!
