New Year’s Resolutions (Part two)


Chinese New Year

This year I’ll learn to trust and treat everyone as a friend,

A handshake and a well spoke word will mean truth again,

I won’t live a life gone by, stewing in my own pot,

Wallowing in self pity, at a time and place I’d rather not,

I’ll enjoy all the challenges that life always poses,

But never for a day or a minute, forget to smell the roses,

I’ll plan for the future and dream about what could be,

With my feet planted in the present to keep my sanity,

I’ll dance like nobody is looking, probably that’s best,

I may not win a dance contest, but I’ll show some zest,

Love with my whole heart, halfway will not do,

Holding part of myself back, is not fair to me or you,

I’ll treat everyone with respect, in each and every relation,

For without respect there will not be a solid foundation,

I’ll spotlight my strengths and focus on what I do well,

I want this year to be positive, on faults I will not dwell.

    1. Again I’m writing to remind myself of adjustments I need to make. Thanks for the amen, amen, amen.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. it’s where the tire hits the road and pushes forward. I look through glasses of time and experience. Yes, Amen for both of us.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

      1. Kilroy was everywhere making his mark.

        May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
