I am thrilled to be a new contributor to Colorado Rider News magazine. I have followed the growth of this publication for several years and am pleased to have my daily affirmations now posted in a larger forum. So here we go!
We will open a new book in 2021. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day! Each New Year, we have before us a brand-new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year—the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You are doing things you have never done before, and more importantly; you are Doing Something. So that is my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody is ever made before. Do not freeze, do not stop, do not worry that it is not good enough, or it is not perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you fear doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever. Have a SPECTACULAR 2021!
