Beginnings





Every new year is a fresh start - a do-over; a chance to mend a fence, repair a wrong, fix a bad habit, renew a relationship, forget a pain.  May you not feel burdened by this new chance this year.  May you be gentle on yourself if you fail and may you not be afraid to try again in the months ahead.

If today's dawn is any indication of the coming year, it will be filled with light and the songs of small birds, and of hope for a new day. Happy New Year Tabor!

Thank you for your words.
All I know
is that my woods are beautiful this morning and my phone was ringing at 4:30 in the morning
with a call from my son in Thailand.
A good way to begin 2013..
Best to you and yours
and I know it will happen...

I said almost the same thing on my blog post and Facebook today. You don't have to wait for a new year to make changes. Every day, every hour, every minute is an opportunity to do better and start again.

GORGEOUS photo! :)
Happy New Year!

Interesting boardwalk, or is it a dock? And dramatic colors, too. I should really write down my resolutions this year. Happy new year!

I missed some of your posts while I was taking leave during the holidays. I read this post and liked your thoughts. Especially to be gentle with yourself if you fail -- and to try again. These are soulful thoughts for many of us. -- barbara
