Feliz Año Nuevo!

Happy 2008! It's a new year, a new beginning filled with many possibilities. I wish everyone a healthy and wonderful year filled with love, and everything beautiful. One should hope for bigger and better things to come. Just be positive and have a good attitude, and you'll be surprised at what a difference that will make. Every Monday, the local paper publishes a column called "Para Commenzar el Día" (translation: "To Begin the Day"), it emphasizes on one word in which the author uses to motivate and inspire his readers. This week, the author chose the word"Limpieza" (translation: "cleaning or cleansing"). He writes about the need for all of us to begin the new year with a clean white canvas, which symbolizes life, where each one of us is considered to be an artist.

Before we can be master painters, however, we must have a strong desire and willingness to take part in having our very own clean canvas. We must have the strength to shut the door on those that bring so much unnecessary drama into our lives, people who seem to use up so much of our energy. Instead, we should "cleanse" those relationships that deserve our time and devotion. Furthermore, those of whom we have wronged, we should ask for their forgiveness.

Effort is of utmost importance. So, just throw out all that was making your life unhappy in order to make room for some wonderful possibilities.
