"Be the change you wish to see in the world." Gandhi
This year feels different, so I will take a different approach.
Today, I am lighting a candle and sitting quietly, just seeking peace with each breath. Just that. Simple. I will light a candle rather than cursing the darkness.
But, the most important thing I will do on this new day in this new year is to invite God to guide me. I will welcome love into my heart and tend it like a precious flame, allowing it to warm me from the inside out and light my path. This year I will seek to "be" peace. Gandhi admonished us to "be the change you wish to see in the world..." This is my new mantra. I wish to be peace. Happy New Year. Peace.
