Goodbye 2015

And as you all can see, the ball has stopped half way to its perch.

It’s suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year,
to stop,

and reflect on the year that has gone by,
to remember both our triumphs and our missteps,

our promises made and broken,
the times we opened ourselves up to great adventures…
or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt,

because that’s what new year’s all about , getting another chance,
a chance to forgive.

to do better,
to do more,
to give more,
to love more,

and to stop worrying about what if…
and start embracing what will be.
So when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop,
let’s remember to be nice to each other,
kind to each other,
and not just tonight…
but all year long.
