Happy New Year

Best wishes for the New Year and the years to come. 

The best New Year's Resolution I came across is to take care of one's health and make sure that their family is healthy and happy. All my life I have made New Year's resolutions only to forget about them after a month. I am not going to make any resolutions because it is hard work to keep a check on them. Instead I will check mark the things that I finished doing and feel good that I got something done. When it comes to weight I will not worry about the numbers, instead I will just eat right and go for walks. 
I hope that the new year is full of good things from the beginning to the last day. I may sound as naive as a child but is there anything better than hoping for the best? Let us think about the ways we can have peace and aim at making this world a peaceful place. I don't know how I can reach people in far off places to talk about peace, but I can do my share by doing small things in my own way.
I wish everyone a safe and happy New Year. I pray that everyone gets (and gives) a gift of kindness and understanding in every situation. I hope that everyone is in good health. Amein.

I always agree with your words of wisdom. I wouldn't ask for more than
peace between nations, good health, tolerance and respect towards others.
A Happy New Year to you and yours!
Hugs, Drora

Happy 2015 to you my friend. I share Mark Twain's view of resolutions: "New Year's Day now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual." ~ Mark Twain

HNY to you Munir. No New Year resolutions for me. Positive living is a good way to go.

Hi Munir,

And the childlike innocence of wishing for the best is an ideal that I embrace.

A peaceful, positive New Year to you and your loved ones, my dear friend.

I agree that having hope and working for peace are more valuable than a list of resolutions. Happy 2015! xo

Hello Munir and a very Happy New Year to you also. Sorry I am so tardy in my visit to you, but I have not been well, and only started blogging a few days ago.

All the best.

May 2015 be your greatest year yet. :)

Anita said...

The change of year this time around hasn't been that noticable for me. I think I'm learning to go with the flow.

So how are you doing with your walks and your nutrition? :) I don't have to ask about peace and kindness, because that is natural for you.

Thank you for your blessings. Happy New Year to You and Your Family, too!

What a wondeful post. A happy, healthy New Year full of kindness and love to you. I love the idea of not making resolutions but just taking care of being kind and good to oneself and others.
I hope you're doing well.
Lots of love to you.
