This new year, I am hoping for more peace and kindness on this precious earth. So much of the time, I take for granted the wonderful life I have, the amazing opportunity to live and love, to breathe and see, to use my body without even thinking how lucky I am. I want to be mindful of the joy of being alive and be thankful for all that I have. I want to live a productive, peaceful life and find ways to love others more and to be kind and patient. May we all exude peace and joy into the world and help to make 2011 a year of renewal. Happy New Year, everyone !
