Lovely poem by a 13-year old

“Life can be a competition.
You either win or lose,
the winning game is not for everybody,
neither is the losing game. Progress or remain stagnant. Suicide is a weakness.
The villain to life.
There are more goals to achieve in the future.
It’s all up to you!

New Year’s Toast

New Year’s Toast

By Joanna Fuchs

Here’s to the new year…

frohes-neues-jahr-0027

May it bring more joy and success
And less grief and regret.

To our dreams…

May we never stop believing in them
And taking the actions that will make them a reality.

To our friends, loved ones, associates (or colleagues)…

friends10
May we take the time to let them know
How much it means to us
To have them in our lives.

Let us encourage more and criticize less,

friends11
Give more and need less.
And whenever we can,
Let us create harmony and peace.

Let us start fresh, right now,
To make this the very best year ever.

A very Happy New Year to all of us!
