Begin again.

We’re almost two months into a new year – the time when New Year resolutions begin to fade and old habits creep back in.  I resolve daily, instead of annually.  And I extend frequent morsels of mercy and grace to myself knowing that I’m a work in progress.  Ralph Waldo Emerson captured this.  “Finish every day and be done with it.  You have done what you could.  Some absurdities and blunders crept in.  Forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day.  You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
