I feel quite certain that this year will either be the best year of my life or perhaps one of the most frustrating, despiriting, crushing years of my life.
I'm trying to make take as my personal motto something inscribed on a ring my brother brought home from Spain many years ago: "Mas que ayer, menos que manana." Which basically means, "More than yesterday, less than tomorrow." Or in other words, every day is better than the last.
All I have to do today is be a little bit better than I was yesterday and I think that is success.
