Growth and Gratitude

On New Year’s Eve, here’s my pledge:

To turn my back on self-absorption; and its siblings self-pity and self-indulgence.

To replace selfishness with kindness, curiosity, and – above all – compassion.

To live in the present and to remember to feel and to express gratitude for that present and all it represents.
