A New, New Year’s List

HNY2018

My heart is excited at the blank new page that is before me,
Things to do, things to accomplish, places to see,
The list is endless and as same as the previous years I feel.

In this New Year,

What if I focus on joy and that which brings my soul alive?
What if I learn to let go, instead of holding on tight?
What if I learn to listen, instead of trying to tell my side?
What if I learn to love, no matter what their slights?
What if I learn to forgive, instead of defending my right?
What if I learn to live this day – one day at a time?
What if I can carve some alone time to hear the whispers of my heart?
What if I learn to live like my inner child who I had left behind?
Because in the end, it is not what I accomplished in the world that counts,
But how many lives I’ve touched and how alive I was – while I lived, that’s paramount.
