I offer gentle understanding to myself.
I position myself in love, not fear.
I look behind me with forgiveness.
I look forward with festive anticipation.
I embrace this holy moment and assert,
"Now. This moment is the moment to love,
the moment to serve, the moment to seize
the legacy instead of the small.
Now. Now I will live large, love boldly,
reach to the edges of my unfurled heart and fully enrolled hope.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
"And so with the sunshine
and the great bursts of leaves
growing on the trees,
just as things grow in fast movies,
I had that familiar conviction
that life was beginning over again
with the summer.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald, #TheGreatGatsby
