On The Brink Of A New Year

All I know to say is that I’m excited about this year’s prospects. More than I have been for quite sometime.

Of course there is plenty for me to worry about, if I choose to. But I don’t choose to.


For thousands of reasons I don’t need to list for the true optimists out there.

Every day delivers an abundance of choices that if chosen could lead to, will lead to, a very good year. A good year at the same time the world is on fire.

I am an optimist. I am also a realist. Many good things are possible if only we stay steadfast in pursuing them.

That’s the kicker, isn’t it? Staying hopeful and working steadfastly to make a small corner of our broken world better.

We are all on the brink of a new year. A year each of us can blaze with hope that 2023 will inspire some lives, many hopefully, to do impossible things.
