I will greet the new year the same way I greet a new day.
With wonder that I am here to meet the rising sun yet again.
With intention to offer my seeing, knowing, words, and actions in service to the creation of a kinder, gentler world.
With awareness that, amidst the busy-ness, I may stray from my path, grow complacent, or misstep.
With appreciation that, when that happens, I can offer myself patience and forgiveness and return to my intention over and over again.
With gratitude for another day to manifest the life that I am here to create.
May this new day, and the promise of a year full of new days, bring us closer to one another and closer to peace for and upon the Earth.
