Even during the worst of times
When I feel the years go slipping by
Life seems rife with possibilities
When the New Year arrives.
Buoyed by hope at the New Year coming
I feel renewed and want to start living.
This year I’ll travel and see the sights,
I’ll be bold, I’ll be courageous.
I’ll reach out and go beyond.
I might even try being flirtatious!
I’ll be a new fish in a brand new pond.
This new year I’ll be brave and I’ll be strong.
Even though time does fly,
I won’t let this year be wasted.
I’ll look forward to new adventures
And be open to opportunities I am graced with.
I’ll learn and laugh and have good times.
I won’t dwell on years gone by.
I’ll start each new morning a brand new way.
I’ll pretend it is New Year’s Day!
In this new year,
Let’s talk more, chat less.
Let’s call more, text less.
Let’s meet more, FaceTime less.
Let’s travel more, collect less.
Let’s care more, ignore less.
Let’s do more, gossip less.
Let’s praise more, blame less.
Let’s share more, accumulate less.
Let’s experience more, fear less.
Let’s love more, hate less.
