"Personal affection is a luxury you can have only after all your enemies are eliminated. Until then, everyone you love is a hostage, sapping your courage, and corrupting your judgement."
~Orson Scott Card
This is a quote from one of my favorite books. To break this down a bit in my mind i see it saying when you hold grudges, hate, and pain of the past you hold yourself back. Everything is impaired because your judgment is altered and your heart if full of conflict. I have taken this quote to heart and opened my heart again to the possiblitly of change. i know i have alreday said i feel blessed but as i look at my life and all the wounderful poeple i get to share it with, i realized i cant say it enough. As this new year is upon us, i believe we could all learn a lesson in the art of letting go. Some may say its forgiveness, or it only hurts yourself to hold on, or just being stubborn. Either way its a new year, a new beginning. Now let us all raise our glasses in a toast to the new year and new hearts!!!
