In Case You Need Something to Do in 2008
~ Pick out something you want to accomplish this year - whether it's a hobby you enjoy or you need to paint the kitchen or you want to learn to speak French - and do it. Even if you don't reach your goal, you'll still feel a sense of accomplishment if you work at it consistently.
~ Smile more. Shrug off small irritations more easily.
~ Sing loudly. Dance when the mood strikes.
~ Eat to make your whole body happy, not just your mouth.
~ Laugh at the same stuff that made you laugh when you were ten years old.
~ Forgive others even if they don't ask for it. Don't forget to forgive yourself for your own failings.
~ Remember just how fragile people really are. Remember how resilient they are as well.
~ Read something that'll make you smarter. Listen to music that'll make you feel more deeply.
~ Learn about people and cultures and religions with which you're not familiar. Don't hate but ask questions instead.
~ If someone does you a kindness, do one for someone else.
~ Count your blessings and express your gratitude.
May you all have a wonderful new year celebration and may 2008 be filled, for all of us, with happiness, good health, love and peace.
