We have entered a new year and a new decade with new energies and a different signature than the cycles of the past. This one brings despair and hope at the same time and we have our work cut out for us, “work” being the operative word. Those not willing to work hard this year will certainly be in the camp of despair more than those that do. Even though most of the year will be more intellectual and less emotional, it is not a time for endless discussion and debate but more for action, choice and change. There is a ruthless quality to the month as we set ourselves up for the coming times requiring good boundaries, the courage to face the truth, and the discipline to DO IT NOW. If not now, when? Time is up for diddling around with “sort of” intentions and action plans.
