Cheers to a Better Year


Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson is one of my favorite comic strips.  Maybe it’s because I see so much of myself in Calvin, and, like him, I don’t plan to change in the new year.  I made up a life-changing resolution a long time ago, and I continue to say it to myself every day.  So, instead of an annual New Year’s Resolution, I have a daily resolution that has been guiding me for decades.  I’ve shared it with hundreds of people in my children’s book, A Little Bit Better, and today I would like to share it with you.

A Little Bit Better

Thanks to the things I did yesterday,

Today I am better in every way.

I love myself with all my features.

I love the world with all its creatures.

I set great goals and I get them done.

I find many helpers, and so it is fun.

I’ll use this day wisely and go with the weather.

Tomorrow I’ll wake up a little bit better.

May 2019 be a little bit better to you than previous years, and may you be better in 2019 than you’ve ever been.

Happy New Year.

Peace & Love, and all of the above,
