or we can make music. ~~ Barbara Sher
There are two kinds of people in this world:

I used to
have this toy, a magic slate. You wrote or drew on it and then, just by pulling up the plastic cover, everything you did disappeared and you could start new. Maybe everyone feels that on New Year's Eve: They can pull up the magic sheet and rewrite their lives.
A time to say goodbye and a time to say hello.
A time to bid farewell and a time to look forward.
A time to let go and a time
to learn new things.
That is what happens when the New Year rings in.
~~ Catherine Pulsifer
For a change, don't add new things
in your life as a new year's resolution. Instead, do more of what's already working for you and stop doing things that are time wasters.
