(Full Disclosure: I swiped this from a friend’s Facebook page.)
On the stroke of midnight tonight, you can resolve to be better, if you like…
to be fitter,
to eat cleaner,
to work harder.
On the stroke of midnight tonight,
you can resolve to become a whole new you,
if you so choose.
Or, you can take a moment to acknowledge all you already are.
Because it’s a lot.
You’re a lot.
And you deserve to be commended.
On the stroke of midnight tonight, perhaps you could congratulate yourself for coping.
For breaking, again,
and for rebuilding, again.
For catching the stones life has thrown at you,
and using them to build your castle that little bit stronger.
You have endured, my friend.
And I don’t see the need to resolve to become a whole new you,
when you are already so very much indeed.
Happy new year.
You made it.
Now let us face another 365 day-turn, arms wide, accepting, embracing and ‘seeing’ each other,
for all we are.

May 2023 bring you happiness, good health, and prosperity, Happy New Year!
I love this. I hope 2023 is a better year for all of us.
I certainly am a lot. Too much, many would say. The castle is crumbling, too. Nonetheless I am grateful for you and your blog presence this year.
Yes it is good to pause to remember despite it all you have ‘made it’ and 12/31 is as good a day as any.
Happy New Year !
Great post and a wonderful way to think about New Year’s Eve and “new year, new me.” Enjoy your festivities tonight!
This is the best! Wishing you another year of being exactly who you are.
