‘Tis the season. The season of reflection, new goals, aspirations, repairing broken relationships, helping others, and generally just being our best selves.
It’s time to put the past in its place and make the future full of promise. Realizing that any mistakes, misdeeds, and uncaring or unkind thoughts or words are now history. We are not our mistakes or anyone else’s for that matter. We are responsible for our actions, words, and deeds and are comprised of all possibilities. My favorite phrase is “Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life.”
Make amends, be kind, helpful, respectful, moral, empathetic, sympathetic, compassionate, truthful, trustworthy, patient, understanding, determined in purpose, and above all else loving while simultaneously embodying the very best of yourself and reflecting your happiness onto others. Don’t worry about falling or failing, just get back up and keep on keepin’ on. We are after all, not our mistakes, but our possibilities. Smile and pass it on… Sandy
