A Wish for 2012, Surviving the New Year


“To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals–this alone is worth the struggle.” -William Penn

My wish for 2012: I wish for the world to have peace, love, friendship and compassion for each other and all living things regardless of race, religion, gender or species. It is my fervent hope that each one of us will carry the good will and generosity of spirit that we show at Christmas time for the next 365 days. To embrace one another in friendship and love. To reach out the hand of charity to those in need. To show understanding and compassion for every living being. That is my wish.

It was so hard not to go out last night and ring in the New Year with friends at a club last night. I was all dressed up and I really wanted to go have a beer. I knew everyone was there and I wanted to be too but I made it past the desire to do something that I would have regretted later and I’m sure my body appreciates not having a hangover this morning!
