Martin Luther King, Jr.: ‘Take the First Step in Faith’

January: the first month of the year and a time for new beginnings.

Ever hopeful, many of us make a resolution or two on New Year’s Eve, promising ourselves we’ll accomplish something special in the coming months.

Sometimes, however, what we want to accomplish can soon loom very large in the light of day after New Year’s Eve.

Afraid to fail, we ask ourselves: “What was I thinking?”

We begin to rationalize — even before the holiday decorations are stowed away — that a challenging goal is really too difficult or enormous to be attainable, so why bother? And another year goes by.

This month we also celebrate the birthday and amazing life of American hero, Martin Luther King, Jr. Dissatisfied with the status quo, King encouraged people to imagine a better world – a world no one had actually seen before. Goals don’t get much bigger than his, but King was a man who believed in the power of our collective individual efforts to bring about massive positive change.

“Take the first step in faith,” King said. “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

Join us in celebrating the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Honor his legacy by mustering the courage to dream big, coupled with the tenacity to see your dream as a series of achievable steps.

One of our big dreams for Atlantic Veterinary Hospital is the installation of digital X-ray, a new technology that allows better and faster diagnostic capabilities for our patients. While upgrading our X-ray equipment is not world-changing in a global sense, the technology can be positively life changing for our pet patients. Right now, digital X-ray seems out of our reach due to the cost of the new technology, but we’re working on smaller steps to achieve that goal, and we’ll keep you updated.

What are your goals for 2012?
