New Year, New Pair Of Sneakers

Let me be the first to wish you a very Happy New Year.  It's exciting to think that 2011 is in the books and that tomorrow we get to start a brand new year isn't it?

The new year is sort of like putting on a brand new pair of sneakers, just out of the box.  That fresh new smell.  The perfectly white soles.  The anticipation you feel as you lace them up and they hug your feet for the first time.

What lies ahead do you think?  Where all will these brand new sneakers take me? What kind of adventures await me and my sneakers?

As you take that first step in the new year, remember, you can either run or you can walk, but that the world of possibilities await.  Don't just sit there.  New shoes are meant to be broken in. They're made to get a little dirty.  They're made to get really, really worn. That's the fun part.  Wearing them. Experiencing them. Discovering all the fun and exciting things that are waiting to happen for you in them.

As the new year path unfolds, don't wait for it to come to you, go out and grap it with both feet.  Get out there and experience it.  Step out that door, start walking or running and make the commitment to yourself that you will live the new year like you've never lived a year before.

Lace 'em up and get going my friend...your new year adventures await.

Happy New Year.  May this be your best year yet!

Ripple On!!!

Thanks for sharing. The imagery of a new pair of shoes and a new year is cool. Think you mean grab not grap-is that right? I have a slightly different slant on a fresh start for the New Year on my blog. Perhaps you'd like to check it out?
