We Begin Again

It is 2014 and we begin again, a new year, new possibilities, a clean page to write on.  I did a little cleaning up around here too, adding a great new pair of shoes and redoing the other buttons as well. Feel free to copy the code and add/replace them on page!
I'm not one for making resolutions, so I leave it simply as to get up each day and try to be a little more of the person I want to be, both inwardly and outwardly, to take better care of myself and others, and to live in the moment without fear.  The great thing about life is that we can always begin again.  No matter how many times we get to the end of the day and think "I blew it," we can wake up in a new morning and start again.  There is no such thing as being a failure at life until you breathe your final breath.  In between now and then we have infinite possibilities to improve ourselves and to make a difference in the world.
If I had words of wisdom to bestow as we start this year,  I would say to be kind, to care for all others without judgment, and to make good choices for yourself and your own life. Close the doors on things and people that no longer give you what you need to thrive, and open yourself to new possibilities.  Believe that God will be with you and bring you safely to where you need to be.
Wishing each of you a wonderful new year, filled with love and good memories in the making.  It is my privilege to share my thoughts and words with you here, and to read yours.  Blog on my friends, it is truly one of the sweetest things in life!
I will leave you with a reminder that today, and the first day of every month, it's a really good idea to download a copy of your blog to your hard-drive.  It's an easy thing to do, and then if the worst should ever happen and your blog disappears, you will have what you need to restore it!  I'm also going to work on printing out a hard copy of all my blog posts from my very first blog until the present, and keep a copy in our safe for my kids to read someday after I leave this world.
Happy New Year everyone... believe in possibilities, live life to the fullest, and love to the max! :)


  1. May this be the best year yet, for everyone. Happy New Year to you, John, and your family.

    1. I am praying that it will be too, Annie! Blessings to you and Bill in 2014!

  2. Happy New Year, and learning to download my blog would be a good skill to master this year.

    1. It's super easy, Mimi! The download is not in readable format as a document, unless you have a reader program, but it can be uploaded to a new blog and that could be lifesaving! I download it on my computer, then upload it to a private blog I created as a back-up copy. Peace of mind! Unless Blogger crashes entirely and I lose my laptop and flash drive! :-/
