Timely Thoughts

Wel,, first let me say that I don't make New Year's Resolutions... they are nothing but a set-up for failure.

That being said, I thought I'd try to come up with something profound for the new year. hahaha My friend Tammy has a great list going over here, and I think I could copy it and paste it, as it is very relevant to my life also.

Instead I'll post this, from the site Bone Sigh Arts. It's been a tough year for me, moving away and trying to establish myself, make new friends, find a job, etc. many of you out there have suffered too. The good news is, with a little laughter, a little courage, and a dash of bravery, I CAN DO IT. You can too.

maybe it's time to take care of yourself.
maybe it's time to scream out loud
that you don't have the answers
and you just plain can't figure out what it's all about...
but you're in this for the full ride.
maybe it's time.
Maybe it's time to stop doin' the half ride.
maybe it's time to step into it all.
to weep your guts out.
to hurt all the way to your core.
to allow the hurt to be there.
maybe it's time to embrace the love
and believe in it even tho it's not always perfect...
but it's always right.
maybe it's time to shout out to your depths that you do matter
and you will do all in your power to live healthy.
maybe it's time to stop just getting through, just surviving.
maybe it's time to grab the gift you've been given.
and celebrate every piece of it -
including the pain that brought you here.
maybe it's time .
forget the maybe...and know it..
it is time.
