Life's Soundtrack - Goal Setting

Winter

My mind has started to move onto goal setting for 2011.  Whenever I start making goals one song immediately comes to mind - LeAnn Rimes' "What I Cannot Change"

I will learn to let go what I cannot change
I will learn to forgive what I cannot change
I will learn to love what I cannot change
But I will change, I will change
Whatever I, whenever I can


Listening to this song always leaves me feeling empowered and ready to tackle any new challenge - including accepting things about myself I may not love and cannot change (which may be the most difficult challenge of all.)

Happy New Year!

Have a most beautiful day.. This is just what I needed.. Something ss I need to let go of and live.
My brothers death is hard to talk about and hard to keep inside so ...... Thanks and the tears fall.

We all have stories. And we all have hard things to carry. Some packages are heavier, some lighter. In the end we all need to accept the story of the past and possibilty to change the future.
Thanks for this incredible song.
Happy New Year Inspiration Studio friends!
