Blank Pages

Every year I contemplate the new year and resolutions. Honestly though, I don't usually make them at the beginning of the year; I make them all year long. I do like thinking about the new year as a clean slate though. It's a chance to do things better and to learn from my mistakes. My mom gave me this quote today that explains how I feel.

"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."

May each of us open our books this year and fill our pages with experiences which make us better, happier people.
