With a new year just around the corner, this is the ideal time to ask ourselves, "How am I going to approach the next year of my life?" The coming year is a blank canvas, waiting for us to choose what we want to create on it- the lessons, the images, the mediums, the colors, the textures, the strokes, the milestones, the achievements, the dreams and so much more, because we have the ability to call forth whatever we desire to. And with this knowledge, it is important that we truly recognize that there is no need to emulate our past-the ways we'd done things before may not be how we wish to do so now, so we can have a more effective life. And with the multitude of new things ahead of us- decisions to make and tasks to undertake, if we simply try to meet the expectations of those around us, then how can we expect to ever grow or excel? Time to reflect and come up with a plan!
