Yes, I am late. I have a really good excuse. You see, I have been sick for most of the holiday season — crappy timing. Anyway, I wanted to wish all of you a very Happy New Year. With 365 (make that 364) days filled with promise, the possibilities are endless, as are my wishes for you.
Two thousand fifteen is gone, never to come again. With it, that chapter of your life is over and you are free to write a new story, one filled with travel, adventure, love, courage, whatever you choose. The thing that you must remember is:
“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.” ~ Napoleon Hill
This is your opportunity to live the life you choose. If you choose to drop out of medical school to pursue your dream of being a chef, so be it. If you choose to leave your high paying job to become a stay-at-home parent, so be it. The choices are endless, and they are yours to make. Granted, many of us have obligations that do not allow us to, at a whim, cast aside everything to pursue our dream. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that you must let go of those dreams. Life changes, situations change, but your dreams must never die.
Among others, the Oxford dictionary defines “dreams” as: “A cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal.” Dreams do not expire. They are not defined by time. As long as you hold them close, they endure. Let them stay in your heart, awaiting the moment that you are ready to make them real.
My wish for you is that in 2016, you take a step bringing you closer to living your dream. May the year bring you abundant blessings. Cheers!!!
