Instead of New Year’s Resolutions Let’s Be Grateful



Every year we make New Year’s Resolutions and we fail within a month or two. With everything that has happened we have been given a renewed perspective, and a better appreciation for the simpler things in life. A friend of mine posted this and I am sharing it.

Why do we start a new year, with promises to improve?
Who began this tradition of never-ending pressure?
I say, the end of a year, should be filled with congratulation, for all we survived.
And I say a new year should start with promises to be kinder to ourselves, to understand better just how much we bear, as humans on this exhausting treadmill of life.
And if we are to promise more, let’s pledge to rest, before our bodies force us.
Let’s pledge to stop, and drink in life as it happens.
Let’s pledge to strip away a layer of perfection to reveal the flawed and wondrous humanity we truly are inside.
Why start another year, gifted to us on this earth, with demands on our already over-strained humanity.
When we could be learning to accept, that we were always supposed to be imperfect.
And that is where the beauty lives, actually.
And if we can only find that beauty, we would also find peace.
I wish you peace in 2023.
Everything else is all just a part of it.
Let it be so.
Donna Ashworth
Here are what I feel grateful for.
1: I am thankful for my friends who have loved me unconditionally, despite my flaws and have helped me get this far in life.
2: I am thankful for my health and cherish that I can still walk.
3: I am thankful for the theater and music. When it is great it can transport me and lift me to higher places.
4: I am grateful for my support system.
5: I am grateful for my home, a place I am always welcome.
6: I am grateful for my strong spiritual thirst that helps guide me.
7: I am grateful for my cat Hamlet, who makes me laugh, shows me love unconditionally and makes me work for his acceptance.
8: I am grateful for my readers, for without you I am nothing.
9: I am grateful that my needs are taken care of. I somehow manage to always have an abundance.
10: I am grateful for the freedoms we still have and pray that they continue.

Love for this planet

Sometimes tough love is the way to go or maybe it is waking up from a sleep walking state. This video says it all and makes us think. Do you have the courage to watch it until the end and rethink and change. All it takes is thought, love and baby steps. We can change, we can grow and we can make a difference.

This video is by Prince Ea, a twenty-seven year old poet, activist, speaker, director, and content creator, Prince Ea, has touched the hearts, minds and souls of millions of people worldwide. By creating positive, inspirational and thought provoking content, Prince has accumulated over 300 million views on the Facebook and YouTube platforms alone. In 2009, Prince Ea formed an organization called “Make SMART Cool” (SMART being an acronym for Sophisticating Millions and Revolutionizing Thought). The organization seeks to promote positive social change in various concrete ways from speaking at schools, organizing community events, benefit performances, partnering with community organizations and setting up educational mentorship programs. He believes that the only way to change the world is to change the individual.

This is what T2C is about. Yes, we bring you the latest on theatre reviews, cabaret artists, film, everything Times Square, but we also see ourselves as making a difference. Thank-you for being a part of that.

Happy Valentine’s Day

We’re the Superhumans Shows The Resilience and Joy Of Yes I Can



We’re the Superhumans is a television advert which was produced by Channel 4 to promote its broadcast of the 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The advert features people of various backgrounds and disabilities performing different activities and physical feats with joy and strength. It was set to a performance of the Sammy Davis Jr. song “Yes I Can” by a band composed of musicians with disabilities.

We’re the Superhumans received wide acclaim, and won the overall award in film at the 2017 Cannes Lions Festival. Over 140 people with disabilities from various countries were cast, including 39 Paralympic athletes.

The advert faced criticism for allegedly conveying unrealistic expectations of people with disabilities, but Channel 4 stated that it worked with disability organizations to ensure its portrayals were accurate.

A friend of me sent this to me and I know I had to share this again. We all need to be reminded that yes we all can.
