New Year Thoughts

Tomorrow we'll all be gearing up for the annual bacchanalia known as New Year's Eve.

We women will be slipping into our slinky sexy party dresses, stepping into heels too high, and adding a bit more makeup to our faces.Men will be doing something similar so they'll look their best on the night that features a kiss at the stroke of midnight.Some of us will drink too much and stay up too late. Others will be reasonable and rational and will abstain from excesses of any kind.

All of us will wonder, when we open our eyes on January 1, what the New Year holds for us.I like to think of the New Year as a book whose pages haven't been written yet.

English poet Edith Lovejoy Pierce said: "We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity, and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

Takeaway Truth

If the New Year is an unwritten book and you are the author, then write hard. Live with joy. Live free.
