      At Welhisco school spirit was always important.  During assemblies classes would compete for the coveted prize of “most school spirit.”  I remember one time when our class of “66” wore ‘Avis’ buttons to signify that “We try harder.”

     As we approach the New Year instead of setting New Year’s resolutions that are usually short lived, let me offer an alter-native.  As a therapist and life coach I often ask people what do you want, what is important to you, what makes your life worth living, what do you want your legacy to be, or what are you passionate about?

     Let’s take that enthusiasm we had as students to become inspired and excited about our lives.  It’s never too late to dream.  It’s never too late to make a difference. To live is to give, whether you’re the president or a grandparent.  Let’s live this year with purpose and passion.
