Someone sent this to me for the new year. New year, new hopes, new me.
What would I love to change this coming year?
Share your gifts and talents, listen with your heart.
Do the things you dream about but don't have time to start.
Pick a bouquet of flowers, show someone that you care,
Be gracious and forgiving, life is never fair.
Hold on to your courage, you may need it down the road,
We all have a burden to bear, it could be a heavy load.
Choose to love rather than hate.
Choose to smile rather than frown.
Choose to build rather than destroy.
Choose to persevere rather than quit.
Choose to praise rather than gossip.
Choose to heal rather than wound.
Choose to give rather than take.
Choose to act rather than delay.
Choose to forgive rather than curse.
Choose to pray rather than despair.
If you practise all these things no matter where you roam,
You may find both sun and rain but you'll never feel alone.
