As we prepare to enter 2014, I send you a pair of magic glasses, so you can see the love directed at you every day; and to filter the inevitable disappointments so you recognize their gifts as well. I wish you reunions with old friends and release of any resentments with old foes. I wish you love, peace and happiness, and the same for those around you.

In ten minutes, BET News will air a special about the public memorial for Nelson Mandela which I co-hosted with Ed Gordon and Marc Lamont Hill.

On Thanksgiving, I reflect on freedom and forgiveness -- through the story of my great-great grandmother, a free black child who was almost kidnapped into slavery.

Everybody who won't get fired for doing so, indulge yourself in 30 seconds of mindless goofy movement. Do a dance. Do a headstand. Stick out your tongue and wiggle it at the moon.

Life is short and our bodies only last us a while, so don't forget to enjoy the goofy part of being human.

And to quote Mary Oliver: "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"

The wildness often leaves us in childhood. So imagine you're a child, and give yourself rein to just be.
