Welcome to a fresh year, a new decade. I read in the paper today that
people were having a hard time defining the last decade, and in a contest
only came up with depressing names.
Yes, we can choose to reflect back on the last 10 years as full of pain and
misery, or we can choose to remember the bright spots, and learn from
what has occured.
I am a glass-is-half-full kind of gal (most of the time). Often we cannot
control our situation, what we can control is how we choose to handle
what happens to us. And some days it is easier to think that way than
others, but I hereby resolve to face this year with calmness in the face
of stress, and to try to radiate light on a dark day.
a pillow or calligraphy it and frame it to hang in my office:
"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not
sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
For the new year, I wish you the best life has to offer, and a full
glass of cheer!
