Make It Count

“For a new year to bring you something new, make a move, like a butterfly tearing its cocoon! Make a move!” 

Mehmet Murat Ildan


Today is the first day of the rest of the year! Don’t begin the way you ended. Start new, start fresh, and make a difference starting today! Be someone’s miracle each day, and if you can’t, be a part of someone’s great day. Change your attitude, your perspective, and stop living in the past. Start this year with joy in your heart. Whatever life brings you, you can face it because you are strong enough. Look at it this way, if you are alive and reading this, your track record for getting through bad days is 100%.

Celebrate the little things today. They got you through each day last year. Celebrate the big things. They are accomplishments to be proud of. Turn on some music (it’s disco day here for me) and dance! Sing as loud as you can and take joy in it, and blow off those negative naysayers who are telling you to stop because you sing off key or can’t hold a note. I’m singing and dancing and not letting anyone stop me!

Make it count today and every day after!

When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
