Happy 2013 .. On Your Terms
However, as I watch the rain drops fall (and think thank goodness it’s not snowing in Atlanta!) it seems like I’ve been given a small gift to begin the new year. With the gray clouds overhead today I don’t feel a need to go and do. There will be time to think about that in the 364 days to come.
Today is for taking a small breath, to listen to the quiet, to be satisfied with the now without the pressure of achieving goals. There will be time to think about that in the 364 days to come.
Happiness comes in unexpected ways. Today it’s a rain drop. Tomorrow it might be something that drives career success or the nurturing of friendships. There will be time to think about that in the 364 days to come.
As the unknown of the next 364 days await there is a sense of apprehension mixed with excitement; so today, especially, Helen Keller’s words resonate with me.
Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties. – Helen Keller
As you open the door to your 2013, I offer a toast to you for a year where you keep happiness on your terms .. for the next 364 days and beyond.
