2015


updated it a wee bit

In 2015, some people will leave your life,
And new ones will enter.

In 2015, some dreams will vanish,
And others, not thought of, will come out of the sun,
Perhaps even make you smile.

In 2015, you’ll make mistakes,
And like always, you’ll survive them all,
Knowing a little more than you did before.

In 2015, you’ll win some things,
And others, you will lose.

In 2015, some friends will fail to understand you,
And some will grow to love you.

In 2015, you’ll get to know yourself a bit better,
Some things you'll learn, you’ll like,
And other things, you won’t.

And finally.......in 2015....learn to love yourself a little more,
And that will be all you’ll ever need.

Happy New Year!

  1. Happy and a PEACE -FILLED NEW YEAR TO YOU BOBBY,THANKS FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL STORIES:

    "I will stay with it and endure through suffering hardship

    and once the heaving sea has shaken my raft to pieces,

    then I will swim."

    Homer, The Odyssey

    On my printer I have this quote from Odysseus, as every morning we awake and we face the same perils as that ancient mariner. Every day we are cast upon the high seas of the soul. Whether we wish to be or not, we are already there, and have orders to show up. We begin showing up when we ask ourselves where are we blocked by fear, by lack of permission to live our own life, by self-doubt? What do we gain from staying stuck? Where is life served by our staying stuck? Who, or what are we waiting for before beginning our real life? How does staying stuck help anyone around us? Every day we are summoned anew to high adventure on the tenebrous seas of the soul. Living our lives, and not someone else's, calls us to voyage, and if our familiar structures falter, then we swim.
