A New Year

Friday, January 01, 2016

The new year calls to me
with bright promises and hopes
as I leave behind the old
and embrace the new

What would I like from this new and promising year?
The end to world hunger and peace on Earth would be nice.
But I can't control those things so
I want to focus on the things that I CAN control.

Weight loss...hmmm, that's a big one
I haven't been successful yet, but I'm not giving up
This will be the year when I finally embrace my goal
and work positively to achieve it

Exercise! I need to find a routine that works for me
I need to stop focusing on the things I can no longer do
and be happy for the things I can
Take a deep breath and start moving forward again

A more positive attitude, especially around the holidays.
I've had enough of depression, I want to enjoy the season again.
Focusing on the losses of the past doesn't change anything
It just makes the present another loss

Keep in contact with my friends
both online and local
Embrace the opportunities that are presented to me
Enjoy the interactions and friendships

At the end of the coming year I would like to look back and say,
This was a good year.
I accomplished a lot.
I stayed positive, and I am happy.

So I embrace the changes I know will come
as I close my eyes, take a deep breath
and take a big step forward
into my future.
