Viewing the newly unfolding 2013 is like standing at the edge of a meadow covered in new fallen snow; watching it glisten and sparkle like thousands of little diamonds in the sunshine. There are no tracks, no dirt, nothing is spoiled. All is clean and bright; 2013 is just waiting for me to step out and make my mark upon it.
As I start along my path, I am confident that it is no accident that my journey has brought me to this place, as I am following a map that those who have gone before me have shared; and so with no hesitation I step off into my bright new future.
I don't know what that future will bring. I know there will be joys and sorrows; along with moments to celebrate, and enjoyment of the beauty of this journey. I am sure that there will be paths that are steep, trails that are difficult, places that I may trip or even fall. Even so, I also know that I can get up again and start over where I am; and that as I continue my journey I will end up where I want to go, and I will become what I want to be.
That is why I continue... sometimes ever so slowly, other times in a great rush, but all heading in the right direction.
Finally, as I look back on where my journey has taken me so far, I see the trail I am leaving behind me. It has become a path that others can follow along, learning from me, from my victories and falls, from my sorrows and celebrations, and they are learning that they can walk on to success also!
Happy 2013 to all! May your paths be filled with joy and peace. May you be blessed as you travel your journey to success!
