Must be something in the air, because Neil Gaiman who has some of the loveliest benedictions for New Years had mentioned he wouldn't be writing a new one for 2015 but guess he couldn't help himself this year either, because he came up with this lovely benediction that I am repeating here as a personal prayer for my family, myself and all of you.
Be kind to yourself in the year ahead.Definitely must make some actual resolutions if I have not already, even though I do not think I want to write them down yet. They will come though. Follow me here because times are changing and life is not meant to be wasted! I will be sharing my new year memories with you all!
Remember to forgive yourself, and to forgive others. It's too easy to be outraged these days, so much harder to change things, to reach out, to understand.
Try to make your time matter: minutes and hours and days and weeks can blow away like dead leaves, with nothing to show but time you spent not quite ever doing things, or time you spent waiting to begin.
Meet new people and talk to them. Make new things and show them to people who might enjoy them.
Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love.
