New Year's Thoughts

Some people are into resolutions, some are not. I personally like any opportunity I get to push the restart button and fix things that I haven't been to thrilled about in myself, in my actions, in my life.

I love the start of a new school semester or quarter when you start with a fresh notebook and a new syllabus. I loved moving around when I was a military brat, because you got to just plain start over in a different country, with new friends, new wardrobe....a new lease.

It's the perfect opportunity to let go of old nagging, negative things you've been holding on to and have tons of room to embrace new positive things. I love it.

I received the following quote from a good friend. It seemed perfect for me, for this time of year, hell, for this time of my life. It says the following:

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints on your heart. To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice, it is your fault. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend, loses much more; he who loses faith, loses all. Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art. Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself... There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift, that's why the call it the present. [Unknown]

Happy New Year everyone! Make 2008 your own.
