This should have been posted yesterday, but so what it still applies!
Today is the day to begin. This new year is a blank canvas upon which you have the delightful opportunity to paint. As you do, be authentic. Your greatest accomplishments are the ones that contain the greatest quantity of you. Be innovative and creative. The challenges you face will melt away when you apply fresh, original thinking to them. Remember not to take yourself too seriously. You’ll climb much higher when you’re thoroughly enjoying the effort. As you move forward, do so with genuine and persistent integrity. That way, the results you create will be results that are actually worth attaining. Today you stand at the beginning of a grand adventure, with the very real and present opportunity to shape this year into the best one ever. Begin now, take the initiative, and never stop living life according to who you know you are.
