Yesterday I took a walk with my perfect dog, Jenny, under a perfect blue sky, feeling good. So many days of my life can feel like a snowy blizzard, but yesterday’s dawning feeling of optimism has lasted into today. I realize we must not deceive ourselves into thinking that the future is all blue skies and calm waters. But I do believe 2013 can be a good year for anyone who makes a decision to improve their life, to find things that need fixing, to uncover deception, to be kind and good to others. Sometimes we must be brave to make hard decisions, striving for fearlessness in the face of evil. At the end of the day, we can make things better, and that is a great way to attain true happiness.
