No resolutions required!

Can it be only 3 days till the New Year? 2013 is so close we can see it. What will we do with these last few days before we open the calendar to the next year.  I know. I hear you. New Year? New week? New day? There’s nothing all that different about going to sleep in one year, and waking up in another. True! But come on.  Admit it.

Starting over

The new year is on our doorstep.  We can’t really start over but we can begin now to make a difference in our own life and also in the lives of others.

Change!

It must be the season! Do you see it too? Every day someone is urging me to change. Change what, exactly? What if I like me and don’t want to change?  Relax.  This is neither a philosophical nor motivational post about all the things wrong with your life. In fact, it’s just the opposite.
