It’s really time to make a change. This year can be my year if I choose to make it so. Things have just been headed downward for so, so long, I want that to end. I want to make it end.

What I’ve been doing for so many years is no way for anyone to live their life. I can do better and I owe it to myself to do better. No more waiting around. No more expecting things that aren’t in my cards. No more tears mopped up by my pillow. Frankly, things can’t continue that way. One way or another, that stuff will stop.
