A New Year

Standard

It’s the first month of the new year, and everything feels fresh. You may have set new goals, started a new relationship or friendship, or a new job perhaps…

Some of us have the daunting task of reinventing our lives, setting new goals and tackling the year head on. Perhaps in 2013 you ended a friendship, relationship, quit your job, or experienced a personal loss.

C.S Lewis said that Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

So this month has been declared as the month to let go so we can all move forward. Letting go offers relief , release and hope. A  renewal and a second chance.

I do hope that we set some definitive goals for ourselves, simple attainable goals.

A challenge for us all is to become the beacon of hope, to get involved in our communities, and to build a society that is just, fair and uplifting.

We will triumph once more! Happy 2014.

So you know it’s a big deal when I decide to write about this topic.

Let me set the scene…
