A New Beginning John Cali

Well, it’s that time of year when many folks aroundrepparttar world are preparing to hailrepparttar 122209 dawn of a new year. This is an exciting time to be alive. I believe 2005 will bring many changes and much growth for all of us.

For most of my life, I faithfully made my annual list of new year’s resolutions in December. And then about mid-January, my list had faded intorepparttar 122210 dark recesses of frustration and forgetfulness.

Sound familiar?

Now I no longer make long lists of new year’s resolutions. I’ve finally kickedrepparttar 122211 habit! Instead, I make short lists of daily resolutions every morning for what I wish to accomplish that day.

Thanks to Joseph, I’ve realized every day is a new beginning, and not just January 1.

Chief Joseph

How often have you yearned for a fresh start in your lives, a new beginning? How often have you told yourselves if only you hadn’t done this or that, you could start anew with no past baggage?

The desire to have a new beginning in your lives is commendable, and we completely understand that. We are not discouraging you from this.

But, for whatever reasons,repparttar 122212 beginning of a new year has taken on a mystique and power for many of you. And so you make your long, often ponderous, lists of new year’s resolutions.

Then, as with John’s experience, you quickly abandon your well-intentioned lists. And you give up and plod ahead without that energy and joy you felt when you were creating your lists.

The reason many give up their new year’s resolutions lists is they’re too much for you to comfortably handle all at once. You overwhelm yourselves.

And so you “throwrepparttar 122213 baby out withrepparttar 122214 bath water,” as your saying goes.

Friends, you need to take a shorter perspective, if you will.

The Theatre

The Theatre:

My first true love was at twenty years old She was much older, yes I was so bold A theatre lover I became Gloria Swansonrepparttar name of fame Her last performance I think it was ‘Butterflies are Free’, we were impressed A great endeavour this thing she does No mere drama was justly expressed Later on as we undressed I knew my heart was not just me I felt her closeness and accepted ‘We’.

“Timon of Athens’ was a blast and I became a freak! It was a Globe Theatre reproduction in Cedar Creek Nature’s Heavens opened up atrepparttar 122208 exact right moment It added so much torepparttar 122209 spirit and a night of enchantment I’ll always cherish Shakespeare’s greatness This hermit speaking ofrepparttar 122210 ‘ONE’ness.
