The Message 2013

A new year has started and we all  here. Some people we know and loved made it to see 2013 and others have fallen off each of our own personal wagons. As we start to make resolutions, promises we don't keep, and other things we all do at the start of a new year and as I tried to think of something to write nothing came to mind.

I've read other blogs, articles, books, and even post and everyone has an answer or suggestion for what to do this year. Everything from how to save money, love, life, and relationships. Seems like at the start of a new year we all want to start "something new" and make drastic improvements in our lives.

We all have these profounds quotes and words that are shred via e-mail and social networks. We have great ideas and plans that we start the 1st of the year. We even look at our friend and associates and see who we should keep around (well at least for this year until the next year comes around). I'm just as guilty as the next person. Every year at the end of an old one and start of a new one I say I'm going to do this and that or this person isn't really my friend, I take a look at my bank account, my personal relationships with people, with God, I mean the list goes on and on.

I have come to realize that  you have to be who you are. You have to make the changes in your life and you shouldn't have to wait on a new year to make those changes. People, places, relationships, money, goals, dreams, whatever it is you have to get off ya ass and GO! You have to stop listening to people and listen to yourself. No blog (not even mine), post, book, or article, can help with fixing your life. The only person who can do that is you. You have to be pro-active and put forth some effort in changing your life.

It's been a long time coming but I know a change gone come and I promise you that is the last time I'm going to say that. I'm just going to go... not for you or them but for me. Be who you are and do what you want because in the end they only put one person in the casket.
