This could be the year 1




This could be the year
This could be the year, you know. 
Right now, you can believe and/or decide that this is the year that: 



  • You find the love of your life (or renew the one you have).

  • You get the job you want (or a job that will do).

  • You sign that book/music/movie contract.

  • You snare that scholarship.

  • You forgive the person you need to forgive.

  • You forget the things that aren’t important.

  • You start that exercise program that you know you should.

  • You welcome that new baby who represents new hope for the world.

  • You lay down you weapons.

  • You              (fill in the blank)

This could be it, you know.  This year.

Oh the delightful possibilities of a brand, spankling, New Year.
