“There is nothing magical about the flip of the calendar, but it represents a clean break, a new hope, and a blank canvas.” ― Jason Soroski

I hope everyone is having an amazing Holiday Season! Be it with family, friends or alone, make it festive and fun!

I will be posting about my dating adventures in the next few posts as I am back online dating.

I came across the video below and want to share it for 2 reasons.  First, I love people being clever and I love people doing good. This guy did both.  It always renews my faith in humanity and it gets me in the frame of mind to do more for others.

And second, because my friend Matthew is in it. I see Matthew a few times a week if the weather helps.

I briefly commented about him here:  https://atomic-temporary-33385295.wpcomstaging.com/2018/06/28/not-just-faces-they-do-have-names/

On the video below Matthew is at 1:58 mins into it.  He is sitting at his usual spot on the corner of 34th St and Madison Avenue.

Any time you have a chance do something good, help someone less fortunate, please do it.  Give, even if it is just a smile or a loving word.  It makes a world of difference.

May everyone have an amazing New Year’s Eve!  May 2019 be full of wonder and surprises! Let’s make goals and plans!  Let’s do more for ourselves and others.

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
