I feel new hope this morning. Not sure why.
Something about new beginnings and new hope call to me and give me inspiration and hopefully the energy I need to make some changes in my life.
I want peace.
I am tired of every day of my life having someone be angry in some way. I cannot change the people around me, their stuff is their stuff. BUT I wonder if there is a way to not be so hurt by their anger, to let it just be theirs and keep a peaceful heart and outlook in my own heart and life. I wonder. I haven't been able to do this so far. I think that people who say it is possible and write about it glibly have no idea what living with someone who has anger issues is like. But I want a new start and I am looking for a change.
I want peace, I want to be creative, I want to make a difference, I want to encourage others.
I am going to find a way to do and to be all that I can be. No wait that is a commercial. LOL But I am going to find a way. I am tired of living in maintenance mode, too much of my life has been wasted doing that.
I am going to take steps toward the life I want to have. God please give me the wisdom and the energy to go there.
When people around me are angry and yelling I tend to retreat and hide. I don't want to attack back but I do want to be able to stand tall and look them in the eye and let them know I don't like that and that they can talk to me when they are done yelling.
I think we all need lessons in how to manage our anger – it seems to be a world-wide problem.
I saw this on Facebook today and it really spoke to me. This is what I want for my life, my 2013 and this and every moment I have left on this earth.
Here we are celebrating the new year with our sparkling grape juice.
