The person in the mirror is not getting any younger.
We see our bodies change and hear ever louder the ticking of the clock.
It can be frightening.
Yet, part of what amplifies the fear and holds us back is attempting to hold on to that which is no longer there.
As another year fades into history, bid farewell to what has passed. Feel the loss if necessary, but say goodbye with dignity and grace. Remember fondly the better memories. Realize all you have done and all you have been through have given you tools you did not have.
Take a deep breath. Smile.
Then, turn and face forward.
