If you want to know what the next ten years of your life are going to look like, take a look at the last ten... even the last one. And if you don't like what you see, then stop singing the same song. Stop telling the same story, stop sleeping in the same bed. Move in a forward direction and remember, there's a big difference between taking a step back or getting off course, than there is in standing in the same spot you've always stood.
Either change the channel on your life, or accept that your reality, in large part, is your own creation.
From the Half Note and from me, I wish you all a Happier New Year.
