My friend D and I decided that our 2018 will start and end with 3Ds. This is not something that we will resolve to do but a theme that will fuel us all through the year. The first D involves a lot of kneeling, communicating, and calling anywhere, anytime. Dasal is a Tagalog word for prayer. The next D focuses on our physical upkeep and ensuring that mindful eating, and exercise is achieved. Finally, the last D centers on giving time, resources, talent, and anything else we can give for others.
During day 1 of 2017, D and some other friends started this themed-naming year that served as our lighthouse for the entire year. I paled in comparison to what I wanted to achieve but at least I had something to guide me while navigating life each day.
May your 2018 be filled with bliss and blessings from above. Happy New Year!
Backstory: While waiting for the new year fireworks atop our building, I noticed the moon was at its brightest and fullest. I learned that the first day of 2018, the supermoon appeared 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than when the full moon is at its farthest point from Earth. (source/space.com)
