To Start

If I could give you everything you wanted, I'd try. If I could grant your every wish, I'd try. If I could make your world right, I'd try. If I could bring peace, love, joy, hope, faith, I'd try.

Yes, because I care, I would try. But, I am afraid I don't have the power to do all of that for all of you.

So for this new year, this new decade, I resolve that I will:

Love mySelf and love you.

Be your friend.

I will tell you the truth when you ask me.

I will hug you.

Kiss you.

Sit with you quietly when that's what you need.

Listen to you so completely that you know you've been heard.

Laugh with you, chat with you.

Be with you.

Share with you.

Be kind to you and more gentle with myself.

Be present to you.

Because you are wonderful, and I am blessed to have you as part of my life.

This year, I resolve to be the best friend, lover, family, fellow traveler, I can be.

I will stand with you as you make your way and hope you will do the same for me.

For we are all travelers on this road and will not pass this way again in the same form. So while we are here together, let us relish every second of it, and be positive about ourselves. With joy and expectation,

I resolve to face this new year and new decade with my best to myself, and to you.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly
