It’s a New Year, and the way I see it, it’s like fitting the pieces of a puzzle together. Now that 2018 is over, I find some missing pieces that somehow didn’t fit last year. Let’s see:
Whoops, there’s the piece that said I was going to lose 10 pounds. That one must have fallen on the floor.
Yikes, here’s the piece that was supposed to bring me more business. That one must have stuck to another piece and I just didn’t see it.
Uh-Oh, here’s the piece that was going to help me slow down and enjoy the things that are important to me That one must have stuck to the bottom of my shoe.
There’s a lot of missing pieces and a lot of goals I didn’t quite accomplish, but you know what? I get to try again. It’s a New Year and I can make a promise to myself to pick up those missing pieces, turn them inside out and upside down, and work with them until they fit. I have the power to complete the picture that I see for my future.
So, you see, you don’t have to throw the entire puzzle away. You just have to look at it differently and see how you can make 2019 a better year. Personally, I doubt that my own puzzle will ever be completed – and I’ve come to accept that. My goal is to take my ever-changing life and cherish that unfinished puzzle, find the missing pieces that make it more complete, and be kind to myself, knowing I am doing the best that I can. I truly wish you all a New Year filled with all the love, happiness and success your heart can handle. After all, those are the most important pieces of all.
