Like it or not, we are responsible for our own comfort and happiness. The choices we've made--big and small--have gotten each of us to the points we are in our lives. Do you like where you are?
If you're living in "black hole negativity", the time to change is now. Start looking for the positive in everything. Start paying attention to your intentions. Remember: small changes are better than no change.
You don't need a new year to start. What are you waiting for?
