I am looking back with love not sadness.
I am moving forward with hope not fear.
I respect the traditions that have come before
while remaining open to the coming new year.
I have no regrets; they serve me no purpose.
I made decisions the best I knew how.
To fret and worry over what has been
prevents me from enjoying the now.
I will look ahead and not behind
at the start of each new day.
I will be thankful for the experiences
and people I meet along the way.
