2015 New Year Acrostic
Happy New Year Acrostic
Hold onto the best of the past.
Accept the challenges of the future.
Ponder the path going forward.
Prepare a responsible budget.
Yield to the promptings of the spirit.
Never seek to consciously harm another.
Exercise sell-control each and every day.
Work to meet your needs and the needs of others.
Yearn to be all that you are capable of being.
Eat to satisfy the needs of your body.
Align with others who share your values.
Regard and respect others for their great potential.
Some thoughts, even some resolutions for 2015:
Write down your top five resolutions for the coming year. Word them concisely to fit the space.
1. 1st priority:
2. 2nd priority:
3. 3rd priority:
4. 4th priority:
5. 5th priority.
Now post these conspicuously where you will be most likely to see them each day. Resolve to read these daily, preferably at the start of each day. Have a calendar nearby and enter on the calendar the number for each of the resolutions you made progress on achieving that day, while resolving to continue daily until and unless you have fulfilled each resolution. When one is fulfilled, enter the number of that resolution and write over the number the word "Done!"
Have a very Happy New Year. It will be what you make it, but some times it will take patience, adjustment, and compromise, forgiveness, service, and even prayer.

Some thoughts on this special season of the year:
- Christmas Comes But Once Each Year
Christmas is a special time, but just as with other religious celebrations, its meaning and significance often morph into something else so quickly. Its true gift is the gift of hope as our cycle of days and nights resumes.
- New Year Resolutions (Even good any old time!)
What do you do when none of your past efforts at a "New you" have yielded the results you dreamed of? Why, of course, you start all over again, as soon as possible.

What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.
