Happy New Year - New Beginnings

Rather liking the chance to start over, I take pleasure in taking down the calendar from the spent year and tacking up the calendar of the brand new year. I even like turning the page of the calendar to a new month. Although one can make changes in one's life at any moment, a change in the year provides us with a definite time frame to make positive changes in our lives. I welcome this opportunity to reflect on the past year and to design life transformations for the upcoming year. Yes, I do know that people are not always able to accomplish these hoped for goals. However, people do make changes for the better. Some actually quit smoking, others lose weight, and others are kinder, more compassionate. Furthermore, even people that fail to accomplish a desired outcome, can try again at a later time. So here is to new beginnings, may 2009 be a very successful year for you and your loved ones. (I am going to work on being more organized.)

Mollie that's a lovely post, a new year is like wiping the slate clean and starting over. You've almost made me wish I'd made a few resolutions myself!

Happy New Year.

Yes, I agree, if at first you do not succeed, try and try again, it is always fun trying :)

I need to get out of this crysalis and open up into a butterfly.
