Start As You Mean To Go On

Start as you mean to go on.  It is something my father said to me once.  My father was not a big talker. He rarely used 3 words if 2 would do but every once in awhile he would get a little philosophical. I'm not sure if this was one of those times for him or just for me but the phrase has stuck with me all these years later.

Start as you mean to go on. What better time to think about that phrase then now as we are starting a new year? 

It means to begin something in the same spirit in which you want to end it.  If you want the new year to be happier and healthier then behave that way from the start. If you want to be treated well, act like you should be from the start.  Don't start the day yelling if you don't want to spend the day yelling.

It is simple advice but I think it is powerfully so.  Start as you mean to go on.  Well I mean to go on into 2014 eating healthier and not letting obnoxious people get me down.   So deep breaths, and here we go.
