Two-thousand and eighteen will be born tomorrow and she is coming into a world that needs our help. There’s no wiggle room to make self-defeating and ultimately abandoned resolutions. Let’s shift from individual goals and focus more on BIG Love and Interconnectedness. I know that my list of intentions for the new year is a tall order but duty calls.
Kindness is a superpower available to everyone. Use it.
Give back and volunteer. It’s the fast way to get out of your head to see and feel the big picture. Put your feet under what matters to you and connect.
Love fearlessly. Look for the real thing and don’t accept imitation or drama.
Whatever your age, today is your prime. You always have something to offer.
Master your mind. You are just one thought away from another perspective. Ask yourself how you would live differently if you could erase all the negative chatter that rattles around in your head – then live that way.
Stay curious and gladly admit when you don’t know the answer. Be solution focused.
Discipline is freedom. Most of life’s successes are based on showing up consistently.
Welcome 2018! We’ve got your back.

The world does need our help. Each of us has to show up and suit up. Love this blog post. I’ll try to do my part.
We can do this! Happy New Year.
So perfect for me to read this today, thank you Liddy. It will take community, of all kinds, to make a significant and positive impact on our depleted and demoralized communities. Thank you for your persistence, your love of truth, and your gumption!! xoxo kat

Happy New Year! I was on the phone with my mom when 2018 made its way over Maine. I’m looking forward to helping her find new path in 2018. Next time I’m at GRB we’ll drive up to see you! I’ll keep you posted.Thank you, as always, for supporting and loving of my mom and me!
❤️. Wonderful. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year, David. Any resolutions/intentions?
Just one Elizabeth. Be a bit kinder everyday.
Kindness is the most under-rated superpower!
Then bring on the Superpower!
Love this. Thank you for the nudge. Deep breath…. begin….
Hopeful interconnectedness – that’s the theme. I’m so thankful that you are in my life. We’ve got this!
