I’m not sure about you but I for one, LOVE new beginnings. I love everything a new year brings: new hope, new dreams, new possibilities. The challenge is to maintain and sustain this fired-up, I-am-beyond-excited, savour-each-moment, fresh-and-fully-alive attitude not just for the month of January but for the 359 days left of 2015. Yes friends, just as a new year begins, we are one day closer to counting down to the next year. As my brother Jay has said, “the days are long but the years are short.”
My hope is that 2015 is not just another year but rather THE year for you and I to not just dream about a better life but live as better people. May we be inspired by this beautiful quote, “Successful is the person who leaves the world better than they found it, who never fails to look for the best in others or give the best of themselves.”-unknown.
Friends, you and I matter far more than we realize and our impact via our thoughts/words/actions have the ability to transform lives. May this be the year that we dare to dream bigger, be bolder in our actions, and commit to leaving others (whether while waiting in line at the grocery store, at the gym, working with a client, or whatever circumstance we find ourselves in) better than we found it. When we change the way we love, we change the way we live and when we change the way we live, we change the way we love.
