2016….a brand new year, and I’m sitting here wondering what happened to the last 12 months and how it was possible for the days, weeks and months to fly by so quickly. Has it always been so or did time seem to move slower when we were younger? I seem to remember thinking Christmas or my birthday took forever to come or that school would never be out. Now one thing merges into another before I can blink.
I’ll not begin the new year with a list of resolutions. I’ve never been very good at keeping them anyway. Instead, what I wish to focus on is living each day to the fullest, finding good in the gift of life, being present in each moment rather than looking back or thinking about the future. I want to be aware of all that is around me, to say I love you to people who are important in my life, to forgive and be forgiven, to make a difference in the places I touch. Sounds pretty simple, huhn? Somehow I’m thinking that may not be the case.
How about you? What are your thoughts as you enter 2016? I hope that as the days, weeks, months pass we will share some of what is important and meaningful in our lives and that we find richness in each new experience.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

I think you have the perfect words to live by here, if you live to the fullest each day and are loving and kind, resolutions are not needed. Best of everything to you Linda for 2016!
Happy New Years Lulu!! No resolutions, just keep on, keeping on.
No resolutions being made here. I see that a couple of my blogging friends have chosen words for 2016 like Simple or Keeping. I hope you have a wonder-full 2016!
Happy New Year… I don’t do resolutions,,, I usually do not keep any when I do. I focus on the now and try to enjoy the little things that occur on a daily basis…
The older I get, the fewer resolutions I make. I like your perspective. Happy New Year!
I’m with Cheryl. Living the moment.
