Be kind, forgive, meet new people and make time matter

Be kind to yourself in the year ahead. 
 
Remember to forgive yourself, and to forgive others. It's too easy to be outraged these days, so much harder to change things, to reach out, to understand.
 
Try to make your time matter: minutes and hours and days and weeks can blow away like dead leaves, with nothing to show but time you spent not quite ever doing things, or time you spent waiting to begin.
 
Meet new people and talk to them. Make new things and show them to people who might enjoy them. 
 
Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love.

From the journal of Neil Gaiman

 

A 2015 New Year's wish from Neil Gaiman that is just as relevant for us all today.
