It is that time when we reflect on how our life has played out…… for yet another year. There have been studies that show it is in January and February that most divorces occur. Perhaps this is because we do not want to be the one to “ruin” Christmas, or we don’t want to be alone on New Years, but for whatever reason…..after all the holiday cheer, reality sets in and we decide it is time for a major change, as we discover we are not happy.
I really like the following quote:
For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
From the movie, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” 2008
I would like to add that besides “strength”, there would need to be “courage” to “start all over again”.
Life is short, so, as you reflect upon your life so far, choose “happiness” for yourself, and do whatever it takes to achieve it.
