I wish for us all that there would be only good health, financial success, and fun adventures in the year ahead. But, I wish even harder for us to face the inevitable challenges with grace. I hope that when things aren't going our way, we can make room in our hearts and heads for what we don't know: we might not be able to see any good that could come out of a situation, but let's assume it's there somewhere. Try adding a #blessed or a #GodIsGood to your posts about losing a gig, or getting a flat tire, or catching a cold. (Unless you believe the only time you're blessed is when skies are sunny).
May you start each day before checking in on Facebook. Check in with yourself first! Before you venture into the news of the world, look at your personal, inner world. How's it going?
May you take nothing personally.
May you choose to be happy, gracious, and kind.
Here's to taking the power we already have and making good things happen for the world.
