2018 – A TRANSFORMATIVE YEAR

TRANSFORM:  To change in condition, nature, or character; to change into another form of energy.

Call it cliche, sappy, idealistic, pie-in-the-sky thinking…whatever you want…but people, and whole societies can change, can transform themselves into a higher nature, one that produces positive growth and nurtures the soul.

Desire, willingness, and the courage to dream for something better stirs us to action.  Peaceful action generates contagious, life-affirming energy that can affect peoples’ lives in truly remarkable ways!  Time and again we’ve been shown that one person can make a lasting impression – for good or evil. It isn’t a matter of IF we can impact the world, but more a matter of HOW and WHEN.

It is a matter of deciding to let go of destructive ideas, impulses, and behaviors, and choosing to be transformed into positive agents for the good of all.  Some people dismiss the notion that what is good for all is important. They are self-serving, self-righteous,  and self-deluded. They fail to realize that we humans are interrelated, interdependent, and interconnected whether or not we want to acknowledge it.

So, we must face the reality that if we want to live free, happy, healthy, prosperous, and peaceful lives, we must allow all others to live free, happy, healthy, prosperous, and peaceful lives too. We must choose to be transformed into our better selves. We must find the courage to let go of destructive impulses, and to embrace benevolence.

ACTIONS:  Resolve:  to solve problems with words, not violence; to volunteer to serve others; to try new things and entertain new ideas; to treat our addictions; to make healthy decisions; to become more informed with the truth; to disagree respectfully; to develop our spiritual nature; to commune in nature; to choose courage over fear; to develop our talents, explore our creative sides; to become charitable; to laugh often; to forgive freely; to be merciful and thoughtful; to be more loving to ourselves and others.  Let’s TRANSFORM ourselves and the world in 2018 – it can be done!   Peace, Joy, Love & Hope. HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Doctoraquarius.

About doctoraquarius

As long as I can remember I have written - poems, observations, stories. Then graduate school, marriage, raising a family, and work occupied my life 100% of the time, and my writing for pleasure took a back seat. I'm back. Retirement from my professional life as a school psychologist, grown children, and an empty nest have freed me to follow my passion. My wonderful husband of nearly 40 years encourages me and my God sustains me.
