In the spirit of the New Year, and as if it's already the season of Lent, I've decided I'm giving up 'isms' in 2013.
And any other 'ism you can think of that promotes passivity and resistance. And hate. I hate Hate. I think passivity and resistance together is lethal. Instead, 2013 is a good year to think critically, question those in-charge, and mostly, keep people with these -isms at a distance. In the wake of the aftermath from 2012 - a year of many good things, sprinkled with substantive struggle for a lot of us, I still believe that the propensities for human goodness is everywhere.
So long 'isms. If we meet again, I'll work my damnedest to get rid of you.
I'll be seeing more of you this year Peace, Altruism, Resiliency, and Compassion. Happy New Year to my devoted and loving husband, and my spirited children!
