New Year, New Tune

William Shakespeare once said, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts.” If you think about it, his words are very true; just depends on what role you want to play. It’s that time of the year again when millions of people are trying to carry out their New Year resolution or think of one, if they have not already done so.
Resolutions are supposed to help people create definable goals and move forward with their lives, but for many it can be an overwhelming burden. A burden that causes stress and is eventually being dropped to the waste side. So, with this in mind, rather than creating a set goal, researchers believe that people should think of a theme for the upcoming year; for example, a year of happiness. I think this is a great idea, and is broad enough to enable people to move forward in their lives instead of looking back with regret about something that they did not accomplish.
However, I am going to make a different twist out of this suggestion, by creating a theme song for the year; a song that I will regularly listen to and will remind me to keep moving forward despite life’s challenges. Again, that is the point of resolutions, isn’t it? The desired outcome is to enhance one’s life, not subtract from it. What is my theme song for 2015 then? Well, I chose “The Living Proof” by Mary J. Blige. The song is about facing challenges and conquering them. One of my favorite quotes from the song is, “My best days are right in front of me, yet I’m almost there.”
Your past does not define your future, but it can serve as motivation to help you keep moving in the right direction. Ok, your turn… What will your theme song for 2015 be?
