I know most of you are young, probably not much older than say 40, but that still gives me years ( 30 to be exact ) on you, as well as a great deal of Life experience. Granted I’ve never been hooked on drugs, beaten, raped, or in prison. But I have been married 4 times ( some of us just take longer to learn than others ), given birth ( once was enough ) and have grand children. I’ve had individuals very close to me raped, robed and beaten. I’ve moved across the country more times than I care to remember and lived in six States and I’ve seen a lot of history in the making.
I’ve experience 70 New Years Eves, and I can tell you all without hesitation that Life will go on! You may think because you’re alone on New Years Eve, Valentines Day, your Birthday, whenever, that you’ll always be alone. I can’t begin to tell you how often I’ve thought that.
I know for a fact, you don’t have to be. We always have choices how our lives will go. Love yourself, and I promise you that someone, or a lot of someones, will love you to. It’s not as hard to love yourself as you might think, and you don’t have to belong to any religion to accomplish it. Hell, if I can do it, anyone can!
So, with that…
Wish each and everyone who will read this, a very Happy and Joyous New Year!
