“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
~ William Arthur Ward
This time of year is a chance to start fresh and make different choices. A chance to become who you were meant to be and create the life you were born to live. But isn’t that true of everyday. We celebrate New Years with resolutions of change, filled with the excitement and expectation of new beginnings. Each moment is really an opportunity to start fresh.
My sister has a great practice. When her day is not going well and she needs to just start over she will reset her day by taking a shower and pretending this is the beginning of her day.
So just remember if you are already breaking your resolutions and feeling discouraged. Each moment is a fresh start. It is a chance to be a new you. May this be the year you live on purpose and with purpose, drinking from the cup of excellence and basking in your magnificence!
So Happy New Year and Happy New You!
My Challenge: Reset as many times as you have too, each breath is a new opportunity.
