We are only hours away from 2013. The clock strikes midnight, you give a kis
s or get a kiss and celebrations kick into full gear. But when the dust settles, what will you really change in the new year? I remember when I was child, new years resolutions were a big deal.. I’d think of one or two and take them very seriously as I tried to follow them (usually only lasting a few weeks).
Even as an adult, I make resolutions, some I’ve stuck to and some have fallen by the way side. This year has been filled with a lot of joy and blessings both personally and professionally for me and my family. For that I am grateful, but when I look around our world it is evident that we need to change. We need to change as a people. Violence in our society is nothing new, it is part of being a human being, and it is not going away anytime soon. I’m not sure where we actually begin to fix this problem, but I think it has to start with each individual. This year my resolution is to create peace and love within my own life which in turn will spread and hopefully influence others. One act of kindness or acceptance a day is what I will aim for.
Love, acceptance and equality equals peace. Wishing everyone a very happy and safe New Year full of peace and love.
