new friends

do you know how unexpected it was
that you wanted to hear my story?
did you know I was surprised
because my stomach hurt from laughing?
it took me so off guard
when what you offered, gave me answers

see, I've gotten used to waiting.

did you guess that I'd be close to tears
because you said "that makes sense"?
did you know you threw me for a loop
when you saw that I was down?
for some reason
it's hard to accept

I guess I'm scared of getting used to it
afraid to let myself hope
what if I lose it again?
ah, but pain is only tangibility
the currency of value
proof of richness.
it'll come
even if it's taken yet again
it always comes.



So I usually write out some New Year's "Goals" each year...  
"Goals" in hopes that I will keep them in mind even if I can't keep them perfectly.  
Here are my goals for 2014:

Appreciate gestures of kindness!

Mark down moments with praise.

Allow emotions...

Remember that everyone has more to them than meets your eye.  Seek out their stories!

Take opportunities.

Pay attention to your money without freaking out about it.
(I think thanking God for it precedes each instance of this.)

Sing more.

Ask for help.  (Also offer help.)

Linger in the study of the glory of God.

Do you make New Year's resolutions?  Or goals?  Why or why not?  
If you do, what did you resolve this year?

Sometimes I am melodramatic... Bear with me. My favorite thing is finding hope in hard places. If you enjoyed something (or not) I would love to hear from you! You can make me very happy by leaving a comment :)
