Happy New Year

I am not one to focus on the past but I will say that the last two years have brought change, required major adjustments, and lured me into a very low low in my life. When I say that nothing has gone as planned, I am not exaggerating. But I continue to look forward and to live the best life I know how. As I look ahead to 2017, I am hoping for more of some things and less of others so I thought I would put together a list.

In 2017, I would like less:

  1. Worry
  2. Reposts and copy posts and please-copy-&-paste-this posts on Facebook
  3. Spam accounts on twitter
  4. Screaming in the hallways at work
  5. Failure, just in general
  6. Old guys asking me out
  7. Bills
  8. Questioning my abilities
  9. Fast food
  10. Disappointing first dates
  11. Racism, Separatism, Hate
  12. Days when I forget to bring my lunch to work
  13. Fake News
  14. Video challenges
  15. Loss
  16. Drama
  17. Fear and loneliness
And, in 2017, I would like more:
  1. Love
  2. Hugs
  3. Renewed relationships
  4. Dates with Dwayne Johnson
  5. Career opportunities
  6. Publishers sending my books to market
  7. Financial freedom
  8. Road trips with friends, to see friends, to make friends
  9. Credit where credit is due
  10. Events on my social calendar
  11. Unity, peace, solidarity
  12. Originality & creativity
  13. Benefit of the doubt from and for everyone
  14. Forgiveness
  15. Did I say love? Is that worth saying twice? Ok... how about Love Love. That's a little different. 
  16. Truth
  17. Chances to CHANGE THE WORLD
In the meantime, I wish you a new year of peace, health, love and prosperity. In spite of the insanity of this life, I am so blessed to journey through this time and space with each of you. Love and REAL HUGS to all of you. See you in the new year!
