As we wrap up this year, the most unusual of my lifetime and likely yours as well, I just wanted to pop in and say just a few things from my heart to yours.
Thank you–and a farewell to the year
I wanted to leave you with some quotes that not only make me think but also encourage and inspire me. These quotes all spoke to me pretty strongly and I hope you are inspired by them as well.
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ~ C.S. Lewis
Reading this quote was such a good reminder to me that you are never too old (or too young) to have dreams and to set and achieve goals. Now is the perfect time to dream a new dream.
“Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction.” ~ Germany Kent
Last week we talked about how it’s up to us to take action and accomplish the things that are important to us. We have the power to take our lives in a new direction if that is what is right for us. If where you are today is not where you want to be, only you can change that by the actions you take and the thoughts you think.
“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” ~ Carl Bard
Remember that there may be things you regret, but you can’t go back and redo them. Your past is what your past is. But we can start in this moment to make a new beginning. Start with today and make a new ending.

I just finished listening to the last 2020 podcast and your comments resonated with me as I just turned 61 a few days ago.
I wanted to comment on something other than productivity with this email. Since I found your podcast and have listened, I’ve always thought you sounded so kind and gracious and couldn’t help but feel that you were a Sister in the Lord, but had never heard you speak anything that was directly spiritual or from the Bible (and I understand why) I recently read your bio online and found that my assumption was true about our Heavenly Sister relationship. I say all that to say this, your light for the Lord shines through even if you don’t mention Him directly. God bless you!
(I’ve left my email address, but no reason to reply, I just wanted to give roses where roses are due.)
