For many of us, each year has its ups and downs. This past year has had its share of strange occurrences and blessed events. For some, the year 2003 is a room where many can’t wait to slam the door shut……. stock markets, weather swings, elections, etc…….many are just purely wanting to start anew.
As 2004 approaches, we ask ourselves, “How can I build upon the successes of the past year, and move them forward into the next?” Without a course, we have no way to reach a destination. We become victims of luck and chance. What I have found is, the more responsibility and planning I take in my life, the better control I have over the outcome. Sure, unexpected things always happen…..but with God’s help, hopefully, I can chart a course that delivers me to places where my spirit can soar.
Each year before New Year’s Eve, I sit down with a pen and paper and ask myself, where do I see my life a year from now? I know I won’t get there overnight, but over time if I put one foot in front of the other, and stare straight ahead, and with the right amount of faith and focus, I do believe I will arrive at where I want to be.
I would like to wish you good health, good spirits, and successful endeavors for the New Year. With the right plan, and determination, anything is possible……
HAPPY NEW YEAR,
love, Jennifer Avalon
