Open Letter New Year

by Charles Thompson (author's profile)



As the new year starts our minds & focus should be on the state of our World. The current threats of world wars, economic instability, the ever-increasing prices & inflation of everything, as well as deflation. It should be enough to get most everyone's full attention.

In these current times we should as a civilized society seek to better ourselves, our way of life, address the big ever-present elephant in our room.

How can we make life improvements on an individual level? The old New Year's resolution dilemma arises. Some do the same thing every year, weight loss start exercising. Ode to those who stick with it past February.
Moreover the seeking to better one's way of life is key to longevity. We all seek to survive, the strive, to find that middle ground in our pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.

This year I will embark on a new pursuit as I start the new faith-based program to learn about my own personal issues, my path as a Christian, the spiritual walk I have endeavored upon for most of my life, I swayed from the narrow path, led a poor lifestyle in my twenties. Having learnt from the error of my ways, my battles with addictions, alcohol.
I am looking forward to the anger management classes, the substance abuse classes, the victims' views awareness course, videos, with an open mind. To seek to understand the full effect of my faults, my errors, my ways.
Growing as a Christian man who has redemption, a second chance at a new life? Indeed I do live my life one day at a time. Every day is a second chance at a new life.
From Texas life Row....
