January is the time to contemplate the year ahead and many make new year’s resolutions. I looked back at last year and I wrote a poem about my thoughts on the New Year and my own resolutions. It’s interesting to look back and see what was in my mind a year ago, before COVID. Life was so brilliant back then, if I’d only known it.
My new year’s resolution,
As I contemplate new beginnings
Is to worry less about the execution
and just accept my loss or winnings.
Life’s too short to hesitate,
to feel vulnerable, give in to fear.
To stand paralysed until it’s too late,
Before you know it, you’ve lost another year.
So, don’t make idle promises
That you don’t intend to keep,
Just resolve to be more active,
For what you sow, you shall one day reap.
