Within Us

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. –Albert Camus

The blog has been neglected in favor of holidays and vacations… but here, in a new year, I found this quote to be quite fitting. The newness of the year offers the opportunity to hope in ways that we rarely allow ourselves to hope in March, May, August, or November. Even just a few short months into 2009, we will each start to settle into what we believe 2009 has in store for us and what the year will ultimately become. Yet, every day we have the opportunity to look within ourselves and feel the heat of summer and the joy that the sunshine brings. We have the ability to see beyond the cynicism and create a new view of our circumstances, our relationships, and our world.

Carry your hope for 2009 through to December 31st. Carry your joy for a new year… the zest for resolutions and plans… through to the end. Wait until next January to make up your mind about 2009.
