Fall: Happy New Year, Y'all

The arrival of September, the start of the school year, and the end of vacation all give rise to the start of the Fall season. Hopefully we've all had time to rest and rejuvenate. Once again, the hurried pace is accelerating and we have new choices to make. There's nothing like the opportunity to start over!

Hopefully, you'll choose a motivational theme or "mantra" that will inspire you and make you feel good about your life. Song titles like "Forever Young" or "Gonna Build a Mountain" can energize your thinking and lift your mood.

Self-fulfilling prophesies can be a way of life. Tell yourself that you're bound to trip and fall, and get ready to hit the dust. Or get ready for a great new year, set your goals in action, and don't stop flappin' your wings till you're soaring in the sky. Its gonna be a great year!
