#244 “Renewal”

From Steven in Vasalia, California

After yesterday’s post which focused on the cathartic nature of saying goodbye to times gone by, I thought it would only be appropriate to examine the flip side of that same coin today and concentrate on the excitement of the future. I can’t help but to feel an overwhelming sense of optimism wash over me when I examine this illustration from Steven. This well-dressed creature seems ready to take on the world and displays a sense of jovial buoyancy which should be a lesson to all of us. With a cheery smile, an upright posture, and a friendly gesture, this wolf is ready to face whatever the future may have in store. Sometimes confidence and a positive attitude can make all the difference in life, and with an outlook like the one this wolf possesses, I think I can safely say that his future will be quite bright.

I’m not necessarily one for making New Year’s resolutions, but with the coming of the new year, I hope that we are all filled with the thrill of making a fresh start. While it’s true that the occasion for doing this may seem a bit arbitrary, any occasion to begin again is a valid one. So, as we prepare to begin this new year, I pray that the good cheer and sanguineness of this wolf will go with and guide your steps aright.

Best wishes,

“J”
