A new year brings time for reflection.  Today, I thought of the seven deadly sins, don’t ask me why these topics get in my head. Though I had to look because I could name some but not the others.  I guess some people have the same problem naming the 8 reindeer or the seven dwarfs.  Well in case you haven’t tried already they are envy, gluttony, greedy or avarice, lust, pride, sloth and wrath.  As I looked at that list completely for the first time I realized I focused on some but not all because I may work towards not being envious or full of wrath but my pride, lust, and sloth behavior seem to skyrocketed.  Here I am talking about caring for others and I have these bad habits how hypocritical can I be?  Ugh!  Well it is time for me in my new year reflection is to find the difference between lust and love, dispel the hopelessness that has contributed to my laziness and stop to think I have some faults that are diminishing.  Can it be done? The part of me that doesn’t believe in hope says “no”, however I am sure now that I read them more thoroughly I can honestly say to that person who asks what do you want to achieve in the next year, five years, ten years?  For the entire world to realize that the power of positivity along with kindness will solve any dispute.  Secretly though I would like to add maybe have a secure future for many years with a husband.  Side note if anyone thinks this is too preachy or gushy foolishness and want to say no you can’t have it than might I ask why are you being such a fuddy duddy and where’s your temperance, diligence, humility, self-control, kindness, and love.  Again this is the reflection of myself for the new year, what is your reflection?
