CHATTER FROM THE MUSE

A New Year

It's that time again, when we make all those resolutions for drastic improvements to ourselves and our families, than proceed to change nothing.  I am not making any typical resolutions - although I wish I could lose some weight, and I'm sure my writing would be better if I delegated more time for it. 

I'm only making one promise.  I will refuse to see anything negative.  At 80, I have finally learned that we are surrounded by positives that we refuse to see.  Each and every day I will find something I am really thankful for and thank whoever is responsible for that gift - for positives are gifts.   The call of a cheerful neighbor over the backyard fence, the smile of the clerk at the grocery store, or the hug of the little girl in the waiting room, are all gifts of friendship.  The door being held by a denim clad teen and the unexpected compliment from a stranger are gifts of love. 

I realize how lucky I am and I want to be more vocal about it.  I want the happiness and joy I experience every day to become part of the day of everyone around me.  

I have three books in the works and my muse is not cooperating at all.  It frustrates me but doesn't dampen my spirit.  I have met success in so many ways that I know this will pass.  The thrill of knowing I met another challenge is just around the corner.  I look forward to tomorrow and want everyone around me to enjoy it as I know I will.


I pray for God's blessing for a new year filled with health, happiness and fulfillment. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
