With every new year, we expect and hope it to be “The one” that changes everything for us. I wonder what it really is that we want to change? If we wish for change, does that mean we are not content with our current blessings? Have we forgotten the roof over our heads, the food on our tables. These things have become such a given and second nature to us that we might not consider them. Maybe we wish for a better job, a different car, the list goes on. But is this dependent on the new year, or could we make those changes ourselves?
I think that every year will carry their own set of obstacles and I am not expecting the new year to be perfect. Perhaps “The kind, everything going right” year is not for us to be seen. Perhaps it doesn’t exist. Perhaps a good year depends on how well we roll with the punches it has for us. Gosh, I rolled a lot this year, so I have practice and hope it will become easier next year.
But I am not sitting back waiting. I am going for something off the charts, something that stirred something within. A new course, a motto that dares my soul to dream.
“Why settle for what you can get, when you can pursue what may not exist and have a great journey?”
Never forget to dream…
