On our daily walks, my dog, Nutmeg, runs forward while looking backward at me and my other, older dog, Pepper. She’s focused on what we’re doing and rarely looks ahead. Of course, that means she often crashes into trees and trips over rocks not to mention that she misses enjoying the sights and smells ahead of her. This struck me as a strong metaphor for my new year. Maybe yours, too?
Focusing on the past, another person or object does little for our own growth, success and happiness. So, I'm looking FORWARD towards the next 24 hours of my life, bright days and a healthy, wonderful future ahead.
May you look forward to your year with hope, courage and excitement! Happy New Year!
