I feel a bit like Alice over there. Sometimes the world is upside down and confusing.
Sometimes I make the wrong decisions and I find myself spiraling out of control.
But my plan is to end all of the confusion and bad decisions.
2010 holds new promises. New plans. New hopes and dreams. I think we all agree, we like a new start. Since most of us do not get to experience a new day at school, we cling to January 1st like we used to cling to our little back backs and pencil cases.
Look at the newborn baby. Innocent, clean slate. We want to be re-born into a better life.
Even redecorating, rearranging - anything that starts with "re" - means fresh, new, a different path.
I think we all need a little inspiration to get this new year going. This year I have mantra - I hope it provides some inspiration for you also!
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference...
