“Things are always better in the morning.”
― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
You are in control. And, the beauty of it is, we always get a chance to improve, do better, start over, chart a different course. All it takes is willpower, the ability to envision your destination and a new day.
Renewal is a common theme at the end of every year, as we look to do things differently, explore new opportunities and hope for improved outcomes at the dawn of a new year. Just like the cycle of a day, after a year ends, another begins. New possibilities emerge in the morning.
Will you embrace the morning and make the most of it? That decision rests with you.
But, as always, we at Out and About Magazine aim to provide the tools to guide you along the way. Things are always better in the morning, so let’s claim it!
