My Year

"You are in control of your destiny."

This year is my year. I’m not looking for others to define it or influence it beyond my control. I’m not looking for dependency or predictability. This year, I am going to be open to all kinds of experiences, especially those that challenge me and push me beyond my comfort zone. I welcome anyone and anything that helps me see something in a new light, from a different perspective. I welcome change.

This year, I’m not going to sit around and wait for others to do something for me. I’m going to be proactive and seek out what it is I want, even if the course takes me in a new or unknown direction. I will swallow my fear and follow my intuition.

"Let curiousity guide you."

This year, I will not let little things get to me. I will practice patience and try to look beyond the situation to see the big picture, what’s really important. I will focus not on what went wrong and how I could have done it differently. Rather, I will focus on where it took me, what lesson I learned from it.

This year, I will seek to appreciate, share and create beauty of all forms. Whether it is a smile exchanged with a stranger, a piece of art or a compliment, I will try my best to pass it along so that others may experience the beauty as well.

"The world is full of beauty that should be celebrated."

This year is my year, and I wish to be no one but myself - whoever that may be at the moment.
