The decorations are gone, the tree is packed up, the lights are unplugged.
Another year is over and for a few weeks it's easy to feel a bit melancholy.
Looking back and longing for what was...maybe clinging to the old just a tiny bit.
Maybe fearing the unknown days that lie ahead.
I'm getting ready to come out of that fog though. I can feel an excitement.
An interest in a new year.
I want to be done with the old.
I want to move on from all that holds me down, realizing that sometimes what holds me down is ME.
I want this to be the year that I recognize my own potential. It's time to pull back the curtain of negativity and stop feeling doubtful about who I am and what I'm accomplishing in this world.
The possibilities are endless. The future is bright and the time to begin is now.
Bring it on 2014!
