As we enter a new decade, let us hold on to what we need to continue our journey and discard the unnecessary baggage that weighs us down.  Sort through our thoughts and purge that which binds us to our personal prisons; embrace new ways of thinking -  enriching our hearts and minds to greater venues.  We determine our tomorrow; take the chance, make the choice.  Love yourself and those who need it the most. xo
