Here’s to the New Year

Here’s to the passing of a difficult year into the possibility-filled dawning of a new one. 

Here’s to remembering the past, 

But being able to learn its lessons, let go and move forward. 

Here’s to being gentle and kind,

No matter what the world puts in your path. 

Here’s to finding peace, 

With others and within ourselves. 

Here’s to growth and change,

Tempered with wise acceptance and understanding. 

Here’s to love and compassion;

May they always guide us. 

Here’s to unfettered dreaming

And unbridled hope. 

Here’s to 2017.
