"I see the world is changing, that life is flying by- I see that I can change who I am, who I will be".
"No matter how far you fall, it's never to late to pick yourself up." Author Unknown
No matter what has happened in the past, each day brings a new opportunity to do better, to improve your circumstances, to be a better person. Often we dwell on things we should have done, the way we should have treated a friend or loved one, how we should have been a better person. We can't change what has happened in the past. We can't predict the future. All we really have is this day, this moment, this period in time. So, let's not dwell on the past, but enjoy each day to the fullest. So, go out there, take some chances and live, love and laugh.

"For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."
I think this is a great quote to start the New Year. Often, we just stumble along, like we're walking through a dense fog, and do things the same old way without even thinking about it. We don't set new goals, or we set them, and then after the newness of the resolution wears off, discontinue working on them. That may be working ok for you and, if it is, that's great. But, if it's not getting you the results you want, I hope you'll follow the advice in this quote and "have the strength to start all over again". That's the great thing about life - as long as we're breathing, it's not too late to try to change and to start all over agin. So, in the early days of this brand new year, I wish you the courage to break through the fog and change your life if you need to, embrace it if you don't and, most of all, to enjoy each day.
