Happy New Year my friends.
The old year is winding down and I am more than ready to bid it adieu. I look at the year to come as a year full of possibilities yet to discover. The older I get, the more I realize there is nothing to fear in the unknown. Birth, death, loss, change: I can handle whatever life throws at me. I have done it before, and sure as eggs, I’ll have to do it again before I know it.
What I need to remember is that I have friends along the way who will be there when I need them. Some will appear briefly as a reminder and when my need is greatest. Others will be stalwart companions who will never leave my side. And guaranteed there will be new faces appear when I am ready for them. These are our travelers, our guides, our shining stars lighting the way.
We only have to step outside of the box to find all of these people. I know they are there. They are waiting. Just like the words on the blank page that have yet to be penned. Today I take a moment to embrace this thought and welcome you all to join me. For you are part of my journey too.
So gather your words, your friends, the stranger you just know will make the trip more interesting—we need it all. The New Year is upon is and waits for no one. How will we change the future? Time to dream it into existence.
