It’s the first day of a brand new year.
It’s at the same time momentous and ordinary. Every 365 (or if you really want to get technical 365.25, you know because of the leap year) days we start a whole new cycle. Resolutions are made and kept and broken and every year we celebrate.
My sister’s birthday is today. So at the stroke of midnight on December 31st we not only wish each other a happy new year but also wish her a happy birthday.
I’ve made a few resolutions. I usually do. But for some reason I don’t want to say them out loud. I feel like I’m going to jinx it somehow. Like wishes, if I say them out loud they won’t come true.
And I do very much believe in wishes.
So, I’ll keep them to myself and pray that this year I follow through with them. I hope that this year will be better than the last, because we should always aspire to greater things than what came before.
2012, you weren’t bad, you weren’t great, you were just another year lived. I learned new things, I grew, I changed, I loved, I laughed, I cried, I lived and that’s the least that I could’ve asked for.
I wish you all the very best in this new year. I wish you luck in all that you do and I wish you happiness and joy.
Happy New Year all! Let’s be good to each other this year okay?
