New life

You’ve come a long way in the last year. Keep going, and make it all count for something.

You’ve worked through tough problems, enjoyed pleasant moments, discovered new things about yourself, your world, and the people you share it with. Think of how you can now put your passion and experience to work in new, valuable ways.

Think of how your life over the past year would appear from the objective viewpoint of another person. Consider what advice that other person might give you for moving forward.

Remind yourself how fortunate you are to be alive in this universe of possibilities, and able to make a difference. Take stock of all the good and meaningful aspects of your life.

Then, with gratitude and determination, look eagerly ahead. Polish your treasured dreams and values to a brilliant luster, so they can light the way forward.

This day has found you on a magnificent journey. Keep going, keep doing, keep living, keep loving and embrace all the new life that’s headed your way.
