The year is in its infancy. A new year presents to us a fresh, clean start and I can't help but feel a sense of renewal and change; a shedding of the worries and cares of all the last year held. Let us look at our lives with renewed optimism; as full of new possibilities - everything has potential. Let us also strive to seek out a future in which we can claim true personal happiness and satisfaction; I believe that is something we all should do. It is easy to become comfortable with the familiar and, often, excruciatingly difficult to realize when it is time for a change, let alone initiate it. From now on, everything is for the better. Let us be more positive and take life as it is handed to us. I look forward eagerly to all that 2012 holds in store, and all that is open to be accomplished and experienced.
