New Year's is a chance to start all over
It’s just past midnight on January 1st, 1972. Everyone is still celebrating the New Year.
Forrest and Lt. Dan are in the bar in New York City. They’re discussing Forrest’s plan to buy a shrimpin’ boat.
Two women join them. The women’s names are Cunning Carla and Long-limbs Lenore.
Lenore looks at the television and exclaims, “Hey, hey! We was, we was just there. There at Times Square.”
Lenore then leans in and speaks directly into Forrest’s ear, “Don’t you just love New Year’s? You get to start over … Everybody gets a second chance.”
Are you planning to start over this year?
What are you going to do with your second chance?
I wish everyone a safe, healthy, and prosperous 2012! Go make this your best year yet!
