I hope you live life to the fullest in 2013. Fill this upcoming year with generosity and kindness. Never let a debt go unpaid. Pay it forward (or be the one to begin the act of kindness, like paying for the meal of the person behind you). Encourage one another. Keep hostile words and actions to a minimum. Spread love. Believe. Be optimistic. Be helpful. Don’t be prideful. Admit you’re wrong when you are. Win battles gracefully, not rudely. Be willing to help. Be conscious of how your actions and words affect those around you.
But most of all, don’t take those around you for granted. Tell them you love them every chance you get. Listen and be silent when they need an ear to hear. Give kind and thoughtful advice when requested, but don’t ambush. Encourage them to shoot for the stars, and believe that they can do anything they set their minds to.
Here are some highlights from 2012… Not comprehensive and not necessarily in order… Enjoy!
