A New Year

I’m not gonna lie, 2010 kicked my sorry ass.

It was the most trying and hardest year of my life.

I am determined to make 2011 a better year.

I need to learn to let things go.

Things that I can’t change. 

Things that in the big picture really don’t matter.

Things that are not important.

Things that have hurt me and only cause me to harbor bitterness and hatred.

In the words of  Zac Brown…..

Spent the night with a friend of mine and a handle of good whiskey
We picked guitars and talked about how the glory days we missed ’em
And it didn’t take too long to find the truth inside that bottle
Cast a-sea so long ago was a message from my father.

You keep your heart above your head and you eyes wide open
So this world can’t find a way to leave you cold
And know you’re not the only ship out on the ocean
Save your strength for things that you can change
Forgive the ones you can’t
You gotta let ’em go

Looking back now on my life I can’t say I regret it
And all the places that I ended up not the way Ma woulda had it
But you only get once chance at life to leave your mark upon it
And when a pony he comes riding by you better set your sweet ass on it

You keep your heart above your head and you eyes wide open
So this world can’t find a way to leave you cold
And know you’re not the only ship out on the ocean
Save your strength for things that you can change
Forgive the ones you can’t
You gotta let ’em go

Like a sweet sunset in Georgia let it go
And like the fear that grabs ahold ya let it go
Let it go
Let it go

You keep your heart above your head and you eyes wide open
So this world can’t find a way to leave you cold
And know you’re not the only ship out on the ocean
Save your strength for things that you can change
Forgive the ones you can’t
You gotta let ’em go
 
Wishing you all a Happy New Year and the ability to Let It Go.
