Out with a neurotic need to control the details;
in with the mojo required to let good things happen.
Out with crowds of others to please;
in with soul mates who take me as I am
and remind me who I can be.
Out with treadmills to nowhere;
in with runs that respect the journey.
Out with pandemic illness and worried nights;
in with health in mind, body, and spirit.
Out with fighting what is;
in with welcoming all that can be.
Out with lectures;
in with example.
Out with frustration;
in with laughter.
Out with chaos, unrest, noise;
in with the peace of three busy boys.
You will be a decade of changes. And victories. And joy.
Deep-down, cannot-put-words-to-it, beyond-the-smiles-on-our-faces JOY.
We will look for it everywhere. We will find it in everything.
Because you usually get what you expect.
In life. In people. In every day.
Here's to a truly Happy New Year.
