I love to turn to the first page of my new planner, it is blank, I am the one who chooses to write down how I would like my year to proceed. Sometimes we think we are controlled by our circumstances. Circumstances certainly play their part, but if we have a vision and a plan for what we would like our life to be like , we can also use our circumstances to proceed down our chosen path, it may well be a detour, but from this vantage point you may have an even greater vision for what life could be like.
