2014 was here and gone like my sex drive after consuming a medium pizza all by myself. Time has a way of flaunting how quick it can pass by, and with each year it finds a new way to do so.
New Years is a time of self-examination-“a life audit” if you will, but we all know that the dropping of a big glittery ball at midnight doesn’t shift much of anything. If it did we’d all have perfect bodies, healthy relationships and bursting bank accounts. The older we get the more we realize the New Year is simply another day. It doesn’t change us, we change us. And sometimes that change takes longer than hoped for. For example: longer than a 10 second countdown.
So go ahead, blow your New Year’s resolutions, forgive yourself and let’s keep it moving. Far too often our minds are visiting the past or anxiously awaiting the future; nothing short of annihilating any chance of fully giving our attention and appreciation to those we love most.
Last year we had some swings and misses; we wore overalls, leather cargo shorts and rode bicycles topless in tulle skirts. 2015 will have mistakes without doubt, but HERE’S TO NOT LETTING THEM BE THE MISTAKES OF LAST YEAR.
Remember in 2015, the most important thing (dare I not say shoes?) is how we treat each other. Be quick to show kindness, have the courage to be honest and be open to love. Do it for 365 days straight, and when that big shiny ball drops again, repeat.
