Did you know…
… that today is Jingle Bell Rock Day? In 1957, Bobby Helms’s “Jingle Bell Rock” first hit the charts. This is considered the first mainstream Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas song. Although released only 2 days before Christmas in 1957, the single still hit #6 on the pop chart. Trivia fans: The B-side of the single is “Captain Santa Claus And His Reindeer Space Patrol.” 😉

If you want a fresh start, then give yourself one.
Don’t keep yourself tied down to old goals that aren’t working for you anymore. Persistence and commitment matter sometimes. Other times, you just have to slash and burn.
