The turn of the new year.

The turn of the new year.

Another year is behind us. A new year is ahead of us. What turn – what choices will you make?

Similar to a high performance athlete, we sit on the sideline benches overlooking the track, beads of sweat are dripping from our chins…

A 400 meter sprint is behind us, which took years of training to build up to.

Legs and lungs are still painfully aching and filled with acid. That hurt. We all agree.

But we also feel a sense of accomplishment and pride for what we have achieved in the past.

As we sit and ponder when the next 400 meter competition will be, someone whispers – “now what”?

“Now we rest” – replies another. Now we rest and grow strong. Reflect on all that has happened and all that is to come.

We learn from all that has happened, enjoy the victory and look towards tomorrow.

As tomorrow will come. And it will be sweeter than ever for those who embrace it.
