It’s a brand new year, a fresh start, a chance for new beginnings! I am excited about the year ahead! 2017 brought both ups and downs, which I survived. I feel blessed in so many ways! I have learned a lot about life and myself, and I strive this year to not only keep learning, but to never give up on the development and maintenance of my healthy habits. Mistakes will be made, but it’s all about progress and not perfection! I found this quote which I love.

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are
making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

    Going the Distance
    by Charles Ghigna

    Success is not an easy road,
    It's riddled with resistance;
    While failure on the other hand--
    The path of least persistence.

    Show gratitude towards everything in life. Be grateful enough to say thank you from the smallest to the greatest. You universe will continue to bless you, because it knows you will be thankful. Myra Hunn

    “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
    – C.S. Lewis

    This kind of goes with Cathy's quote and what she had to say. I think we've surrounded ourselves here with good friends who all share common bonds. emoticon
