A blank page.
A beginning to a new chapter.
I want to fill this one with an abundance of good health, happiness, success, and love.
I have vowed to write more, read more, and create more because that will bring all of the above into my life.
I will try to forgive my boyfriend’s bad moods and thank him for forgiving mine. With a heavy heart, I will hold his hand as he copes with losing his mother less than 2 weeks before Christmas, and I will silently (and somewhat guiltily) pray that I have a long time left with mine.
I will tell my friends and family how much they mean to me, and how grateful I am to have them in my life. But not just on Facebook, Twitter, or via email, because they deserve more than that and it saddens me that real communication is becoming a lost art.
I will try to remember what’s important.
I will try to keep things in perspective.
To hell with making resolutions to lose weight, join a gym, or stop eating chocolate or drinking coffee.
I most likely won’t lose weight and I’m okay with that. It saves me from spending money on new smaller sized clothes—my current ones fit just fine. Not to mention gyms are expensive and I’d rather put all that money towards chemotherapy and supplements to help my bulldog, Rooney, win his battle against cancer.
I won’t give up chocolate or coffee. They bring me comfort and taste delicious, and life is just too short to give up what you love.
That will be my theme, motto, and inspiration for 2011…Love.
Love what you do.
Love who you’re with.
And when in doubt, love.
Happy New Year to each of you. With love, I wish you an abundance of happiness, good health, success and love.
Thank you for being a part of this chapter.
