“New year — a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story? Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.” ~Alex Morritt
Today’s quote inspires and challenges me to write the future I want for myself. In fact, the fresh invitation of a blank page is one of my favorite things about starting a brand-new year. What do I need to change? What will I keep? Where will I explore? How do I want my life to look in 2023?
I hope the first pages of your new year find you in good health, with a positive outlook for your future. Here’s to a wonderful New Year! ~Cindy La Ferle
