A dear friend gave me a cute ceramic frog – only about 3 inches high – but with his arms folded, his feet planted firmly on the ground, and a very determined look on his sweet little face. We decided that he was saying ‘NEW DAY – NEW WAY’. He is my constant reminder that I am not trapped into doing things in the same old way, just because of habit or tradition or expectations. I can re-create in every now moment just how I want my life to be. I hope you have your own version of my ceramic frog – something you look at every day that reminds you of a personal truth that brings you joy, or determination, or security. Today is January 1, 2010. This really is a NEW DAY.
