Happy New Year from Sydney. This will be a brief post just to wish you all the best for this fresh new year.

I hope that this new year brings out the best in people and that we can all move forward with kindness and treat each other well- with compassion and caring.

Let’s move past 2016, which felt to me like a year that divided us. I really hope that this year and the future will not separate us by fear and prejudice, but that people will look to each others’ humanity and commonality and come together to resolve all the challenges that face us as a people and as a planet.

I’m going to strive to do my part to be a positive force in the world. I feel there needs to be more positivity to balance all the negativity that we are being subjected to. For me this will involve less news watching and being caught up in the latest negative story, as it leaves me feeling depressed, powerless and defeated. I’m going to focus on what I can do using my unique talents and viewpoint to bring some tiny positivity to this world. My part may be one little drop, however let’s not forget that when all of our efforts and small contributions are combined we can be a powerful tide of positive change in the world.

Do you have any resolutions?
