Beginning Again

A new year is a time for a fresh start, a new perspective. Or perhaps, a new year is simply a time to rehash and reshape old ideas and old perspectives. So often we seem to focus on the new and upcoming without taking the time to learn from our mistakes and enjoy our memories.

So here’s to remembering 2014 and beginning our new year:
