I will continue being myself in 2013 but a little older, a little more weary yet more open. I will continue working towards forgiveness and healing while still being a pinch jaded. I will be more hopeful and bright-eyed, more charitable and kind.
I will move forward. Yes, forward — wherever that might be. 2013 is dawning and I don’t know where I will be in its afternoon. I will stride towards Understanding. Of what? I don’t really know yet, but I know the answer is out there.
I neatly circumvented the first part of this prompt which was how I made a difference to someone else. I suppose it is possible I did, but it is not the reason why I do this, my life. All I want to do is to end each year a little better than how I started it.
And so I take inventory of myself at the end of 2012, I see where I am and how I need to grow. I take down those notes and measurements, and tuck it all away. I will dust them off around this time next year and hopefully, if I am fortunate and honest, I will see some improvement.
I will make a difference in 2013 by striving for positive change in me.
