For me I guess it means that this is my year to do things differently, to take more chances, to try new things, to grow and to learn.
So I had a prospective opportunity on the table that I thought could begin turning my life in a slightly different direction and I was really looking forward to it. For weeks I've been looking forward to this thing but today I learned that it wasn't going to happen.
It fell through.
And I very quickly realized that I'd put all of my eggs in that one basket, solidly assured that it was going to be the thing to take my life on a different course.
So, since I said I wanted to learn new things this year, I guess this is the beginning of that learning process. Note to self: Don't put all of your eggs in one basket.
Back to the drawing board.
