When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

We must be willing
to get rid of
the life we planned
so as to have
the life that is waiting for us.
-Joseph Campbell, submitted by Tracy D., Billings MT
For many of us, this is a time to take stock of the past 12 months and ponder what the new year might hold. If you are planning to create some resolutions, I hope you will choose at least one that will surprise yourself and your close friends. If you aren’t into the resolution thing, no worries of course! You can still spend some time this week examining the expectations that you and others have created for your life. Perhaps there are a few that need a little tweaking and maybe one or two need to be thrown out all together. RELEASE THE FAMILIAR and get ready for something new in 2008!
