- Throw Kindness Like Confetti – Granted, confetti can get messy, but if kindness does get everywhere, into all those spaces you never thought it could (like confetti does), wouldn’t the world be a better place?
- Cherish Family and Old Friends, Cherish Old Memories while I work on making New Friends and New Memories – This last year was a year of turmoil for us as a family. My dad went from diagnosis to death in a matter of less than nine months, and it is something we are still coming to terms with. He passed away on the 17th of November, 2018, and while it has been over a month now, it seems like yesterday (and at other times, so long ago). But I plan to cherish his life, to celebrate who he was – a truly wonderful person indeed – by aiming to be all that was wonderful about him, and by cherishing those beautiful memories he left us with. His quiet but quick struggle with cancer, and his passing away, have led me to strengthen my belief to cherish what we have and to keep making new friends (dad made friends effortlessly) and new memories to cherish years down the lane.
- To work on being a better me each day, in every way possible – I have made enough goals and resolutions in the years past to know how I can do it, now I need to ensure I put it in action, every single moment – that’s all there is to it, isn’t it? I hope you can see evidences of a better me each time I post here, and I hope you will let me know either way 🙂
And I leave with you with this wish for the New Year (for all of you and for myself too) – Thank you Neil Gaiman for these beautiful words:
‘May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.’
