What is it about New Year's Day that inspires so many people to start over, to set goals, and to make personal commitments to finally stick to them? It's the blank slate. The fresh start. The clean house. The brand new. The unopened. The untarnished. The unwritten. It's all of those things and more. But really? It's hope.
It's hope for a better tomorrow. For a second chance. For forgiveness. For freedom from chains. For sunlight on a rainy day-or in some cases? Life.
And tomorrow, and the next day, and the next. So long as we have breath! But the trick is to focus on them-as they come, one at a time!
And the even harder part? Is letting go of yesterday. We have a tendency to beat ourselves up for what we didn't accomplish yesterday and allowing that to stop us for moving forward today! Forget yesterday!!!! So what if you didn't finish your to-do list? Who cares if you didn't make those follow up calls? No big deal if your house was left
