As we face the clean slate of a new calendar year, lets try and learn what we can from 2012. My prayer for this year is to let go of the old, embrace the new and learn from the bad stuff.
May we not allow our past to define us, but instead, teach us.
May we prohibit our good experiences from rendering us comfortable and complacent, for the idleness of contentment often breeds disdain, laziness and indifference.
May our negative experiences not consume us, but render us more compassionate, humble, caring, and loving.
May we be willing to change ourselves more than our desire to change everything and everyone around us.
May we be willing to encourage, help and uplift one another with pure motives; without expecting anything in return.
How will you write 2013?
Ahead of us lies the new adventures of unexplored territory…the threshold of an unwritten destiny.
Will you continue to stare longingly behind you, tormented by the storms of the past and fixated on what could have been, or will you commit to setting your eyes firmly on the road in front of you, embracing chance, newness and creativity? The sky is the limit and the opportunity is entirely yours.
