Ode To A New Year
Lose a few things, this upcoming year. Lose your hostility, lose your worry, your spite, your agony, self-righteous outlook on the world, bitterness toward others, anger towards people who once meant the world to you, separatist mentality, and your waning confidence. Find yourself anew midst this new year with new memories, new triumphs, new cares, and new outcomes.
Take this new year, in hand, and love yourself. Love your life for what it is and what it isn’t. Take the time to realize what you have and discard what you do not because you live in the present. All you have is to be grateful for what is tangible; for what you can simply grasp. Your love, your friendship, your family, your possessions…they are yours.
Take the time to remember them and remember that they are a part of you. Even those who have come and gone, in the time that has passed. Those memories are a part of you, as well, though not tangible. Take the time to be you this year. Let no one else enjoy it as an immediate outcome. Allow them to be secondary as you enjoy being yourself. C’est la vie.
