Maybe you’ll make amends, or just stay where you’ve been. You can finally start that one thing. It could be terrifically sad, insanely fast, or too good to be true. It could bring nothing or everything. It could take away all you have. Maybe you can leave all your bad thoughts in the past. You can travel or stay still. Be a better listener, brother, mother, neighbor, friend. Maybe you’ll check in on that lady. Volunteer at that place. Throw away all those old things or package them in a safer place. You can promise more, or stop trying so hard. You can follow that crazy dream. You should. Take up piano. Finally learn to dance or ask him. Jump off the edge of that one thing that made you scared last time. Take deeper breaths. Take breaths away. Breathe more. Love more. Give more away. Blow dandelions. Share time and mean it. Share thoughts and don’t apologize. Run. Go for more walks. Or just sit and be fine. Enjoy company. Finally enjoy your own skin. Spend time outside. Learn the stars. Catch a big surprise. Get in the car and drive. Or stand on the edge of all of it and watch as the time passes by. You can. It’s up to you. There are 365 days and they could all be yours or not. People will leave. Things will change. Nothing is promised except for the moment you’re in.
There are so many ways this could go. It might be wonderful or maybe not. But living your best life is worth a shot.
