It's the beginning of a new year, a time of transition and rewinding to begin again. For me it is a time of reflection on personal accomplishments and disappointments, goals met and those still in progress.
I hope for change and betterment in this year. For self-improvement and a gain in learning and wisdom. I have set goals and outlined a plan, expecting my efforts will produce desired results.
I hope to create wondrous new works and to see my talents blossom. I am excited to see what I can do.
I hope to mirror those virtues I admire in my friends — traits I esteem of value to myself and mankind. I vow to utilize to a greater extent kindness, patience, humility, decency, and integrity.
And as I take it upon myself to engage in personal improvement, knowing I will find success to some degree, I hope all who share this earth will chose to do likewise, that our world as a whole may reap the benefits of honed talents, more wisdom, and warmed hearts towards all.
I do wish the world a cheerful and highly-productive new year.
