Happy New Year!

The passing of one year, and the beginning of a new one, is always a time of reflection for me. The new year brings a fresh start, new possibilities, and potential opportunities. My greatest hope for 2012 is that I find the courage to act on the many dreams I have harbored for so long. What George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) said many years ago is still true today.

"It is never too late to be who you might have been."

Happy New Year! Blessings to you and yours in 2012. May this be the year we discover who we might have been.
