DSC_0039-EditSince it is the end of the year this is an appropriate photo. I was going through some shots thinking I should delete some. This is one that was not marked to process. I thought “That is one of my better shots of the Golden Crowned Kinglet.” It was set to be discarded…

It got me to thinking about New Year celebrations. It seems that people get very excited about a new start in the new year. All the bad of the last year gets washed away when the clock hits 12:00 midnight.

I think it is good to take time to evaluate how things are going, getting rid of all the things that are holding us back. When we go this it can be refreshing and we can start out renewed. It is important to not discard everything just because was difficult or not what we want. Those hard times along with the good times form us and make us who we are today.

The past is set, live in the present; that is what you have the power to change. When looking back give yourself permission to let go of the things that keep you from the present. Clean house but hold on to the things that make the present what it is and change the things you want to make better.

Maybe this New Year celebration is not such a bad thing after all…

In honor of New Years Eve: Happy New Year, enjoy the future because you have set up for it with the past.
