In with the new …

“It will be the year of courage!” she announced. We were having a very late New Year’s breakfast, still in our pjs; uncombed hair, uncombed thoughts.
I liked the idea. “Here’s to that.”

When was the last time you felt courageous?

While jumping on your bed (even though you knew it might break and spit you out or eat you up)? While eating spicy food (even though you knew your mouth would burn and rebel for hours afterwards)? While rolling snowballs with your bare hands (even though it would make your fingers turn blue and go numb)?

I’d say there’s plenty to feel courageous about.

I’ve never had a slogan for a new year, so this is the first new thing of 2017.

… out with the old.

I do believe making mistakes is a necessary part of becoming a better person. That being said, I don’t like catching myself making the same mistake twice (let’s be honest: three times is more likely). So how about not making old mistakes anymore?

How about: “Don’t fool me twice.”

I’m sure there are enough new mistakes waiting just around the corner.
