The End and the Beginning

I am starting a new tradition. I would like to start each new year off with a sentiment to be internalized during the course of that year. What better place to start than with {the man}...the ultime teacher...Buddha. Basically every idea expressed on my "Words" Pinterest board @here comes back to this.

I struggle with a terrible case of being critical of myself. I'm a perfectionist, I am my own worst critic, I can't help it...or can I? During 2015 I'd like to spend my time being a little kinder to myself and becoming that kindness to everyone else around me. Just like the little engine that could, no? I think I can.

I'd like to know, do you have any special thoughts you'd like to internalize in 2015? xx
