Mantra for 2017

wp-image-725110065jpg.jpgI’m a New Year’s person. I don’t necessarily achieve my goals within the year, but there are things I do on a regular basis that may not have started without New Year’s Eve.

As I was looking for something in Facebook, I stumbled upon a post that I liked two years ago. I couldn’t figure out how to share such an old link, so I figured I could just create my own. It comes from a quote by a person I’ve never heard of, Bob Moawad;

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologizes or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The Gift is yours–it is an amazing journey–and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life  really begins.” ~ Bob Moawad

I hope that Bob doesn’t mind a slight tweak:

“The best day of my life is the one on which I decide my life is my own. No apologizes or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on,  or blame. The Gift is mine–it is an amazing journey–and I alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day my life really begins.”

  1. I can remember that day in my life. It was the day I moved out of my family’s home and into the very first home (apartment) of my own – in Boston. That first night there was so magical. Free, I was free. Living with my folks was getting harder and harder, especially when you live in a home with one parent who smokes! And drinks! It was torture but I escaped at 19 after working for a year post-high school, and it felt so good. I had my first shower EVER. We only ever had a tub without a shower… My hair was never squeaky clean because we had to rinse it in the bath water, ugh… but I had a shower finally and I would just stand in it and sing Hallelujah!

I'd love to hear from you.
