A New Year, A New Start

 Each year is an opportunity for a fresh start. To do it over. To start new projects. To cut out bad habits and so forth. That's exactly what I hope to do. To start eating healthier and to catch up on some reading. That's the plan anyhow. Will I? That remains to be seen. With enough drive and ambition I don't see why not. I'm not getting any younger and there's no better time than the here and now.

    It all comes down to willpower. Some people have plenty of it while others don't. It reminds me of the time I finally decided to give up tobacco products. It was hard. It literally took me 4 to 6 months before I could make it through a whole day without a nicotine craving. Anyone that tells you that it only takes a few weeks to be "addiction free" is either lying to you or they don't know what they're talking about. It's well known in the medical community that nicotine is far more addictive than either heroine or cocaine.

  Whether it's giving up a bad habit or taking up a new hobby - now is the time. It's a new year and we'll soon be entering a new moon on the 4th of this month. This is a time to release negativity from one's life - stale relationships,bad habits,and etc. While the full moon (on the 19th) is the best time to start new projects,new relationships, new adventures,and etc.

     
 Life's short so what are you waiting for? Now is all that's real.. Cut the crap from your life. You've got nothing to loose but stress. Do you really need people in your life that constantly belittle you? Do you really need to keep working at that mind numbing job that barely pays above minimum wage? Everyday you're that much closer to death. You're in a race against time and you might as well get a "move on". It's time to start looking out for number one and that means YOU!

   With that I bid everyone a fun,fulfilling,and  a         happy new year!
