Opportunity is knocking at your door.

It's a new year. Clean slate. And this year seems like an opportunity.

Most years I look at the changeover as just another day, and while that is true, this year feels different somehow.

I see options and opportunities instead of frustrations and guilt. I see wide vistas instead of tiny squares stuffed too full of pain.

I spent most of last year letting go of blinders and distractions. I'm still working on that, but I'm feeling more comfortable with letting go. More comfortable in saying "no" and doing what I want or need. And that opens me up to possibilities, options, mistakes, and successes. 

I chose a word for the year: purpose. I'm not sure where that word will take me, but I see lots of opportunities with that word. Maybe I'll have the opportunity to look for purpose. Maybe I'll find a purpose . . . or two or three or more. 

I'm grabbing hold of the opportunity and watching to be shown my purpose.
