The Beauty of Beginnings

I am lucky enough to have Sally* of Flying Down to Hollywood as a cowriter for my hit radio show, Rose-Colored Radio.  I always love what she writes but her ending for my latest show, the New Year's show, was so beautiful and inspiring, I thought it deserved, nay, needed to be written out for everyone, even those that (believe it or not) don't listen to the podcast, to read.

...let’s take a moment to admire the beauty of beginnings. Aren’t beginnings beautiful things? New Year’s is a wonderful holiday because it’s a time for a new perspective. It’s a time to do what you’ve always wanted to do, become what you’ve always wanted to become, to decide what it really is you want to do when you grow up. 
Now as we step tentatively into 2012, we take a brief look back at 2011. Goodness! Think of how much you accomplished! Think of all that you did, all of the people you met, all of the wonderful food you tasted, the books you read, the movies you watched, the podcasts you discovered. You deserve a round of applause for all that 2011 brought to you. 
Now we can go boldly into 2012, knowing that we can do anything, we can do everything. We can keep our resolutions or we can break them – either way, we were brave enough to try, to change, to grow.
