Happy New Year!

Greetings, my friends, and welcome to the year 2020 — the stuff science fiction is made of. I’m a little behind the curve as fas as blog posts go, but heck … you were reading everybody else’s blog posts on New Year’s day and, personally, I didn’t want the competition :-) So here I am late to the party, but hopefully you’ll be glad to see my anyway.

I usually write a power to welcome in the new year; something that usually knocks on my brain in the dark and “should-be-sleep” hours on New Year’s eve. When it does, it doesn’t actually let me go to sleep until I write it down. This year was not exception.

If you didn’t get — or get all accomplished — that you desired last year, it is likely that the reason was the subject of this year’s poem. So, enjoy this little piece, capture it’s spirit and put it into play this coming year and have fun!

A New Year’s Poem

It’s here, it’s now, the time has come
The reigning year is past and done
The New Year lurks, all cloaked with glee
Adorned with glitter for all to see

“NO WORRIES” — it would have us quote
As if those words were antidote
For all the twists and turns to come,
Our challenges, as well as fun!

The dreams we’ve dreamt are overdue
The smiles we’d planned are ready, too
|To claim their rightful royal place,
Upon their dreamer’s happy face

The die is cast – the time is nigh
“The Secret” stares us in the eye
The reason our dreams disappear?
Because our vision isn’t clear

For love, for fame, for health, for money
Our vision must be 20/20

When life is tough and we lose sight
of our purpose and our hearts delight
When what we’re doing, we’ve forgotten why
Our vision is foggy, and our dream can die.

So this year, keep our glasses clear
Don’t let our lenses get smudged with fear
Or angst or envy or pride or shame
Keep love in your heart, and your heart in the game.

For love, for fame, for health, for money
Our vision must be 20/20

Keep 20/20 Vision in 2020

Have an awesome day!

Born to John and Lora Ringold on October 24, 1953, grew up, went to school, graduated high school and joined the Air Force -- turned 18 in basic training. Did 20 years in the Air Force and retired in 1991. Moved to Syracuse, worked at University Hospital and retired from there at 55. During that 55 years... I learned some lessons, one of which is that LIFE is what we make it. I spend a major portion of my waking hours helping other people figure out the same thing. Life is what we make of it, and... "when you master your mindset, you master your life." That's my mission: living it, and teaching it.
