A New Year: A New Beginning. Every New Year we hope for a new beginning. We start off with intentions and resolutions to turn ourselves around. However, after about a month or so, it seems all that fades away. As the old year has now faded away as a sunset, make strong doable intentions and resolutions that are life changing. It is best to start simple and slowly build up to your goal. We have a tendency to charge head first into something and find ourselves overwhelmed, then we simply give up. Start slow and as you make progress with your goals, allow them to build up. The sun does not set quickly, but fades away slowly. "A NEW YEAR: A NEW BEGINNING!"
