“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates
In this New Year don’t use up all your energy and time looking back at what could have been. We all make mistakes, no one’s perfect. Let’s look forward to what is to come and if we can make things better or try to improve the things we don’t like. We can work on a more positive attitude, or do things to improve our health such as exercise, rest, and a good balanced diet can do much to improve how we feel. Always be kind to yourself and others. Lend a hand when you can, or a hug works wonders.
We are all a work in progress!
