Do You Have Your New Year On?

Do you have your New Year on?  Starting a new year is like going out and buying a new dress or a new shirt.  It’s so fresh and crisp and full of promise of all the places where you might wear it. Will you wear it to a party, or on a trip to some exotic place? Will you save it for special occasions or perhaps, wear it to work?

By the end of the year it may have a few stains on it, a hole here, and a tattered edge there. And it’ll have been washed and worn so many times it’s a bit faded and lackluster. It may even be a bit too large or too small come December. But for every stain and every hole and every wearing, there’s a story to tell.

For now, though, your item, like your year, is brand new and holding a world of promise. What will you do with it? Who will get to see you in it? Where will you go in it?  Whether you keep it in the closet and do nothing, or go out and make a splash in it, it’s all up to you. This is your year.  What story will your year be telling twelve months from now?

No wonder I've been grumpy, I'm still wearing December 2015 clothes. Time to donate, discard, fling not cling. Today I'm going to shout-it-out determined to grip Hope for a better December 2016 wardrobe! Thank you for the wonderful visual.
