Happy New Year!

 From my favorite author, Silas House:

New Year Prayer

Find a body of water, and be still beside it for a time.
Build a fire and watch the flames.
Sit on the porch.
Lie on the grass.
Light candles.
Take a deep breath.
Write a letter to someone.
Discover something new everyday.
Tell stories
Listen to old people.
Ask them questions.
Give to others when you can and treat yourself occasionally.
Read real books and newspapers.
Always buy the grocery store flowers if they catch your eye.
Remember there is power in moderation.
Learn to cook or bake a new dish.
Enjoy every meal.
Savor your food.
Drink water.
Every chance you get, hold a baby.
When the opportunity arises, dance.
Always swim or wade in the water.
Study leaves.
At least once this year, pee outside.
Be completely quiet.
Turn your favorite song up loud.
Sing along.
If someone makes you feel bad all the time, get away from them.
Laugh with others.
Laugh when you're alone.
Spend time with animals.
Don't judge.
Think this:  "There  but for the grace of God go I" or "Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
Forgive others.
Forgive yourself.

And I'll add another:  Read a book by Silas House.  You won't be sorry.

Happy New Year!
