My New Years Resolution


“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

~~Mahatma Ghandi~~


That's it.
Pure and simple.

It's easy to carry on and on, and come up with resolutions and promises to myself and others that will never come to fruition.
But when you boil it right down to what "I" want out of my life in this next year... my resolution... that's it

"I" must be the change that "I" want to see.

"I" want to make a difference.

No matter how inconsequential the difference, no matter how unimportant to others that difference is, no matter how small the difference... "I" just want to make a difference.



Happy New Years Everyone!

I love Michael Jackson's song, Man in The Mirror, as it talks about us making a change and being the difference. I love it and I love your resolution.

Happy New Year Kate :)

I like that! A few years ago I picked a Bible verse and that was my news years resolution. I felt like if I focused on that one verse then everything else would work out fine. It was in Matthew 6:33 I think. See first the Kingdom of God. Happy New Year!!! You are gifted writer and I have certainly been blessed by your blog.
