Another year is reaching its end, and once again we all will wonder what the next year will bring. Regardless of how 2012 went, one must look at 2013 with hope. Hope that better things are on the horizon, not just for the Olympic Region and our village, but for the entire world.
There have been tragedies, both natural disasters and those inflicted by our fellow humans. There is no doubt that the coming year will bring similar misfortunes upon our society.
But there will also be positives. 2013 will bring good things, and it's important to look ahead at what we can accomplish in the upcoming year. A new year brings with it new opportunities. Don't wait until 2014.
Perhaps some of us have had a successful year and accomplished many of the things we've set out to. Perhaps others did not quite have the most productive year. In either case, it's time to move on and look forward to the possibilities that lie ahead.
Perhaps one can think of some of the things they are constantly complaining about and take action. Let's all look at our lives and act to make it better - not just for us, but those around us as well. Take action, maybe even try something new next year.
It may be cliche, but why not wipe the slate clean for the new year? With that said, best wishes for a great New Year and great things in 2013!
