A New Year's aspiration for 2013

(courtesy of Thomas Becket, 1118-1170)


May your year be a happy one!


Not by being shielded from all sorrows and pain,

But by being strengthened to bear it, as it comes;


Not by having an easy path,

But by being made sturdy to travel any path;

Not by being granted unbroken sunshine,

But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;


Not by having a life always pleasant,

But by noticing when people and their causes need you most,

And by being anxious to be there to help.


Join me in looking within so that collectively we expand to extend Love, peace, hope, joy and respect to others for the year ahead.
