Today is the first day of a new year. And the first day of a new decade.
2009 was a challenging and interesting year for me. I have been looking forward to 2010, eager to apply all that I have learned over the past 12 months to a new year. Somehow the date on the calendar was significant, representing something different, an opportunity.
Yet I think about one of my favourite quotes, which is 'every passing moment is a chance to turn it all around.' I don't need to wait for a new year to do things differently or create something new. I can do it at any time, in any moment. I find it a comforting thought.
It is good for me to remember this as I move into 2010.
