shiny new

Here we are on the dawn of a shiny new year, sparkling with promise and brand-spanking newness!

What happy surprises are in store for you this year? How will you grow? How will you face set backs and disappointments? Will you rejoice in the beauty all around you? Will you make time to see it and take part in it? Will you give thanks, even during the most trying times? Will you use your life to connect with others? Will you recognize the beauty that is in you, that is uniquely you? Will you embrace your own style and not be tempted to be a facsimile of someone else? Will you shine?

The year begins fresh and new and so must you. Yesterday doesn't define you...it's the promise of tomorrow and the realness of today.

I wish you all the very happiest of New Years! And most of all, I hope that 2008 is your sparkling year to dare to shine through, leaving a trail of twinkles behind you!
