Let it be… Resolved

Happy New Year:-)

To all of you,

I wish for you,

all-

the best that life has to offer.

I have gotten,

to a point in my life,

where I enjoy,

New Years’s eve,

and,

New Year Day.

This wasn’t always,

the case,

I guess,

I had these crazy,

ideas about,

New Year’s eve-

Hollywood romanticism,

about what it should be,

wasted a lot of time,

reaching for silly,

visions,

life does not,

morph magically,

at the strike of midnight.

But,

no,

life experience,

is ever,

really,

wasted,

either,

it’s all useful,

sometimes,

just in shedding light,

on what you don’t want.

That is actually,

a good thing.

Honestly,

I don’t need my life to,

change,

drastically,

I am pretty happy,

the way it is.

I don’t really ‘do’

new year’s resolutions

No, but, seriously,:-P

I have year long,

resolutions,

little lifestyle changes,

that aren’t too drastic,

but,

that transform,

slowly, steadily,

that bring about,

real change,

long term,

that start with-

baby steps.

A few years ago it was,

about eating more fruit,

and,

drinking more water,

moving more,

and,

it has meant,

a leaner and stronger me.

This year’s resolutions,

are more,

on a mental and emotional level.

I want to take care of me,

my mind,

my heart,

I want to spend time doing,

things that make me,

happy,

that enrich my life,

that are joyous,

and,

that push me,

intellectually,

creatively.

I want to continue,

trusting my voice.

This year has been a year,

of great discovery,

in that area,

but,

I feel I may have taken,

a few steps back,

lately.

It happens,

and you have to take,

backward steps,

when dancing,

right?

So, this year,

work on the photography,

read more,

write more,

experience new things,

get out,

move,

keep eating oatmeal,

take care of the ole bod,

so it will continue,

getting me around,

town and life.

Worry less,

what others think,

except those who you truly,

respect,

who have your back,

even if they are being,

critical,

critical is a good thing,

when done,

with truth.

Keep away from drama,

unless I go to,

the theatre or the cinema,

or need to face things,

in my life,

or help,

my people,

face things in theirs.

Work on being kinder,

work on being,

more open minded

work on being more loving,

eschew defensiveness,

but,

don’t take shit.

Keep reaching,

for my dreams,

while doing,

the work,

it requires,

keep on keeping on.

Yes,

let it be,

resolved.

Be well and happy all of you.

Later girls,

BB
