“What the new year brings to you
depends to a great deal on
what you bring to the new year.”
-Vern McLellan, author
OK, so 2020 sucked! Big time. Historic. Cosmic. We ranted and raved, cursed and cried, but all we could really do was kick 2020 hard as it crawled out the door. There are still difficult times ahead, but with a new year comes new hope, and as Vern McLellan puts it, this new year will depend on what we bring to it.
For motivation I’ve decided to look at this new year as a chapter in my lifelong book. What do I want the theme of this chapter to be? Hopeful? Sad? Tragic? Perhaps a comedy? Do I want to be a hero or a victim? Do I want to be like the characters in my novels who persevere when faced with overwhelming obstacles, or do I want to give up and give in?
I’ve decided to make the theme of this chapter in my book “Adventures”, in the hope that I can be more adventurous during this next year, perhaps small adventures so that I can remain safe, but daring to push my boundaries physically, intellectually, and spiritually.
I invite you to begin writing your own next chapter and to make it as exciting and meaningful as your favorite novels.
Got plans? If you’d like, share the adventures you hope to have in 2021. May they be good ones.
