I have a friend who has been dragging through life in the last several years. I see this friend occasionally during the year at social gatherings. Every single year, it's been the same response to the request to catch up on what's new.
"What's new? Oh, it's the same since the last time we talked."
"What's new? Oh, the same old-same old."
"What's new? Not much! Everything's pretty much the same."
And so it goes.
During a random search through my quote journal, this quote by Brian Souza caught my eye:
"If you're not inspired by what you are doing with your life, that can mean only one thing: it's time for a change."
