Time after time after time we travel swiftly down the same road. We go the same way to work, to church, to the grocery store, even use the same back streets to get home from work to avoid traffic. We drive mindlessly to our destination, sometimes so deep in thought that we can’t even remember driving. We follow the traffic laws and arrive safely. We wear our seat belts and do not text while we are driving. We get where we want to go, when we want to go there, how we want to get there…and arrive alive. 

Life is full of decisions. Go left, go right, go straight ahead? We are in life where we have chosen to be. We might not want to admit that or embrace it. It’s easier to be a victim and blame things on other people, circumstances, or situations outside of our control. When we are honest with ourselves we know deep down that we are responsible for the consequences of the choices we have made. We might ot always like the outcomes, yet we need to own the decisions. 

In the new year where do you want to go? What do you want? Why not get started now instead of waiting for the new year? There is nothing magical about January 1st. There is nothing preventing you from starting a new path today. We make new year’s resolutions, yet what we really want is change and we call it a ‘new year’ resolution. Get the courage and get started now…your life, your dreams, your health and finances are worth it.
