This little slogan was part of a marketing campaign by Mary Kay Cosmetics several years ago. It is a fitting topic for how we can approach a new start or a change, especially for the better. The beginning of a New Year can trigger a ‘restart’ in our lives and is a good time to set goals, develop a plan, and decide what we would like to accomplish. It has been said that some pursuits are an “inside-out” job, i.e. a new start may best begin with our inner lives, including our thoughts and feelings. Goals (or resolutions) can begin with how we are going to change our thoughts, feelings, actions, or words for the better. I plan to write out my goals in the next few days and develop a plan of action for consistency. I am grateful for a positive outlook as a I greet the New Year!
