I will celebrate the success of others as if it is my own success. There is enough success to go around. Let’s think of success as an unending bowl of mashed potatoes. Everyone can get a healthy serving and there is still enough for heaping plates of seconds. Or thirds. Success is a bottomless bowl of mashed potatoes. Dive in everyone.
I will be fearless in the pursuit of doing what is right. Okay, actually, I likely won’t always be fearless in this pursuit, but I vow to fake it. I will not let that fear stop me from doing what is right. I will not fear what others may think of me as I do what they might not dare to do.
I will share joy every chance I get. Even on Monday mornings–especially on Monday mornings. Even when someone else is crabby–especially when someone else is crabby. I won’t let rainy days or others’ glares dim my light. I will have big joy and gratitude all the days of 2018.
This year, instead of creating a resolution or a “One Word”, I am creating a playlist. Many songs will be transferred over from my 2017 playlist. My theme song right now is Lauren Alaina’s “Road Less Traveled“. Here are my favorite lines:
History gets made when you’re acting a fool
So don’t hold it back and just run it
Show what you got and just own it
No, they can’t tear you apart
Let’s OWN 2018!
Two roads diverged in a wood and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
