Are you excited about the upcoming year? If not, you should be. Always remember that your best days are always ahead of you. Don't use the past to determine where you are going to end up. Leave your past in the past, never to look upon it again. That's what God does; he throws our past into the sea of forgetfulness. Our past helps to make us stronger for the plan that God has for our life; it is not meant to break us down.
Take the time to ask God for direction when you need to do so. He will always guide us down the right path. Notice I didn't say the easy path; we will all go through struggles while we are on this earth. But don't let that stop you from believing for the best for yourself. Opportunities are always around us--you just have to set your mind to finding them. Take care and God bless.
