January first start first day of the rest of my life.
New clothes, new hair, but more important new attitude.
I have come out of the cocoon which was 2013. Now I am a butterfly soaring into 2014.
Stronger and better than before.
Ready for what life has to offer.
Making my own way towards my future.
Happy New Year to the new me.
