What kind of magic can you work in your life this year?


It is such a relief to know that every morning we can start fresh with a clean slate and that we can do that any time during the year. A new year is simply a reminder for most people of a promising new beginning. As they say, out with the old (the old that’s not working so well, that is) and in with the new.
