The world hangs heavy
Don’t carry your burdens love
You can be weightless

I wrote this yesterday. Then thought that perhaps my word for the coming year could be the opposite, that it could be light. The opposite of things, so many things, hanging heavy. That the thought could be of not holding onto things and of letting them weigh me down.

But also, of being a light. For my own family. For the students I work with. To do the best that I can be. To set an example. To be a light for others to follow.
