This Year – a manifesto for 2024

This year, I will accept myself and others as we are: whole and complete and doing our darndest.

Happy New Year, Everyone! Wishing you all a calm, yet fortifying 2024.

Here are my goals for the year ahead:

This year, I will scroll past gloomy headlines. I don’t need to know the blow-by-blows of political bickering, climate disaster, or armed conflict.

This year, I will greet strangers with a smile even when I don’t feel like smiling.

This year, I will acknowledge my feelings and take a moment before acting on them.

This year, I will continue doing things I think need to do for myself, my loved ones, and the planet, but I’ll try not to overdo it.

This year, I will accept myself and others as we are: whole and complete and doing our darndest.

Me and Bob, in this together come hell or high water.
