We just had a new year come around once again. So what does that mean to you and me. To some it’s a chance at a clean slate. To others it’s just another year and another day with the same old problems and no solutions for them. I would like to say for me it means the clean slate, but I guess it means a 60 / 40 mix of both with the slate being the 60 and the rest 40.
I know some of you have new years resolutions but that is something that I just don’t do. I just never saw the point. To me it was just making an expectation that I would just forget the next week anyways. In other words if it was really important to me I would work on it no matter what day it was instead of waiting for the new year to implement it. Hell, by that time I would have forgotten it anyways. I guess that’s my fault though because of my scatter brain.
I, like you, have a lot to work on both physically and mentally. And let me tell you, those two things in themselves are very, very hard things to work on. I don’t know about you but last year and the last part of the year before last made me about ten years older both physically and mentally. But along with the bad there was the good. And because the good was so great I think it cut those ten years in half. I learned a lot this past year and along with what i learned I gave up something I spent over twenty years being. Something I had been doing since I was a teenager. And, as I sit here today starting out my first new year in this new life I have to say that I am really, really lucky to be be alive and not only did I made the right decision but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I guess what I am trying to say with this thought of mine is that GOD opened up a new door for me and I made the choice to walk through it. I’m not saying it wasn’t hard but it was an offer and the start of a new adventure that I just couldn’t refuse. I am thankful for it.
Why don’t you trust GOD and let him show you the way to the clean slate he wants you to have, not the resolution you think you need.
