Happy New Year!

May you have the time to share your energy, spirit and love with your loved ones as 2023 brings its magic to us.

Another year is gone, and so we grow older. For some this is depressing but I like what Emily Dickinson said about growing older: We turn not older with the years, but newer every day.

This is a very positive and uplifting way to think about aging! It suggests that, rather than simply getting older and losing vitality and potential, we continue learning, growing, and becoming “newer” every day. This idea can be a source of inspiration and motivation to make the most of each day and to continue learning and growing as individuals. It can also be a reminder to embrace change and to stay open to new experiences and perspectives, rather than becoming stuck in our ways. So as we face 2023, let’s imagine a year filled with adventure, love, and magic.

Happy New Year Royce.

Two thoughts. 

May your troubles last only as long as those Resolutions you fail to keep.

Rather than change resolve to just working on being yourself

May the New Year bring ‘newer’ to you and your pen, and, 

May your troubles be fewer than the teeth of a hen. 

Happy New Year!  🎇
