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.

Well, new years aren't always what we intend to make them. In 2013 I told my friends that 2014 had to be a better year for all of us. On Jan. 2, 2014, I slipped on a slick parking lot, slick because of someone else's negligence, and broke my leg. Three days later, the plumbing broke in the concrete floor of our underground house and we had to have the house replumbed. I was in bed with a broken leg and no water. Now I go into 2015 with no expectations. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you.

MizBejabbers - Could it possibly get worse? Don't answer that question, or a jinx will hover nearby. Just make it through the January days of 2015 and you should be in the clear for a great year....if war doesn't break out!
