This is the year
of doing what you love,
of creating what itches from inside you,
of getting healthy and happy,
of learning self discipline and self love,
of finding meaningful friendships and relationships,
of reminding your family how much you care,
of burning bright with passion in the face of your fears
and never choosing to let up.
This is the year I tell you.
The year where we take with a bellowing fire inside us
all the things that make us pure.
Forget decency and mediocrity.
We must be great.
