Family is So Important; Song of the Day – This Love by Maroon 5
I love my family. They are among my most cherished possessions. When I was younger, I would dream I could fly. But in order to get into the air I had to step three times, then jump and away I would go. So whenever I was running away from monsters I had to have enough time and space to take three paces and a jump (with both feet firmly planted, not one in front of the other, not on one foot) before I could fly away. The monsters never seemed able to fly, don’t ask me why. I could escape, but my family was still in danger so I started imagining a giant bubble that could hold my family and I would balance this bubble over my head while I ran three paces (always starting with the right foot), jumped, and took off into the air to save those I loved from the pedestrian monsters.
That was a lot of pressure I put on myself, but a happy ending meant a restful sleep. Aren’t we all looking for that happy ending? I didn’t make a New Year’s resolution this year because they have never succeeded in the past (I’m done with all that pressure), but I’ve started thinking that already I have two. Two resolutions that I didn’t have to put into words on the eve of December 31st. One is to get the Flashback series up and running. I hope to have a happy ending for that resolution by this summer. The other is to be healthy, for the sake of my family, my happiness, and my happy ending.
I wish each and every one of you health and happiness in the coming year.
