Whether you’re like me and finishing up your TBR list for next year, preparing to fill out the FAFSA, or you’re finishing up your list of New Year’s resolutions (or perhaps all three!), I wish you well.
Whether you’re my best friend or you don’t even know me, Happy New Year! ❤
Why I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions
If I want to do something, I will. As soon as it’s available, as soon as I’m able, I will do it. To make a list of things I’ll do in the next year is to assume I’ll be there to fulfil the plans. Things I want to do, things I want to change… I don’t wait, I won’t leave it to hope that I’ll see the dawn’s light to begin my list. It’s great to have ambitions, but I see no reason to put something off that, if I truly wish to do it, could easily be done tonight (if it is possible at the time).
On THAT note, I DO like to make “To do” lists and the like. For example, my TBR list for the challenge over at Evie’s blog! But such lists as this are merelys thin guidelines, reminders, etc. Not stuff that I think putting it on a list of resolutions will suddenly become more desirable to do.
Point is: I’ll do what I want, when I want. New year, new me? No. New Year, same me. Things will change, sure. But not because of a list.
Happy New Years, Sami
What a crazy year, girlie! Oh I’m so glad I know you. ❤ There’s really nothing I can say that I haven’t said before, so I’ll just wish you a happy year. May it be filled with love and learning.
Happy New Years, D
I miss you more than I can say. I’m so conflicted… I truly do want you back..if I can’t have that, I just want a reason why. But, since stumbling upon you once more, I’ve realised something. You and Harry are happy. At least, it seems that way through your roleplays. But it’s hard to think otherwise, since I know how the two worlds correspond. I just don’t know if I’m selfish enough to disrupt that happiness… Is a reason too much to ask for? Would it do more harm than good to speak to you? Even if I were to get what I want, what of you, what of Harry? Would it give rise to problems? That’s not what I desire…
D, I truly do hope you’re as happy as you seem. I wish you and Harry nothing but the most prosperous lives!
Have a good life, D.
Have a good life, Harry.
To Sami, D, Harry, and all the rest of you lot:
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

Happy New Year, loves!
