Beautiful new year’s mercies from my writer friend Majo Aldana. She writes at Quedamos los que puedan sonreir. Her original post “Let’s Have More/Tengamos Mas” can be found here.
Let’s have more / Tengamos más
Have you looked at the stars lately? A sunset, a sunrise? Maybe at some kids playing at a fountain or a field? Have you looked at your hands, your eyes? Have you felt your heartbeat?
This 2015, instead of or in addition to (whatever your preferences) the new year’s promises and resolutions, simply decide to have more.
for others and yourself.
be it in tears, dances in the rain or snow fights.
to savor in your mouth, to share with others and realize where it came from.
in the form of sunshine, knowledge
or simply in the company of others that share theirs.
from hugging a tree, talking to your grandparent about life
or enjoying a kiss or a hug.
to live well and more presently,
making sure you are contributing to others’ well being in some way.
from flowers, music or travel.
More smiles, more questions, more… Let’s have more.
Looking forward to “more” with you this 2015.
Thanks for reading.
