ODE TO 2019

 

At the end of every year we look back on what we’ve done

In preparation for new beginnings, new visions and the year to come

Some memories we bring forward, the best of what occurred

Some we should let go so repetition is not observed

Overall take the year ahead one day at a time

Live in the present and in the divine

Seek to say “I love you” each and every day

Not only to others but to yourself in every way

Create confidence through the small steps of achievements

Each success attained, a self-accomplishment

Face your fears and change your mindset

You are greater than what you regret

Remember change is the only constant

Trying to be perfect is exhausting and imprudent

Knowledge is not wisdom, seek experience and clarity

Find your own narrative, make your own pedigree

Be deliberate and consistent in your actions

A visionary not a dreamer, filled with emotions not emoticons

In order to move forward acknowledge where you’ve been

The good the bad and the ugly created the amazing reflection you see

Age is about attitude be as young as you desire

Wisdom is about evolving and keeping the inner fire

 

Remember – you are so much stronger than you think you are

So as the clock turns into 2019, may you find your life’s repertoire.
