How do you ring in a new year and say good-bye to another? Boldly and with anticipation or somberly with regret? In each year there is usually an equal mix of joyful moments, along with more trying times. That’s just life. There really isn’t anything magical about Dec 31 vs Jan 1, however it provides a mental reset. Clean slates. Fresh starts.
Didn’t quite accomplish what you had hoped this year? Start anew. Fought through a challenge and came out the other side? Breathe deeply and forge ahead. Celebrated special milestones? Savor those moments and create new goals.
Everyone is on a journey and you never quite know which side of things someone is on. Upside? Downside? Barely hanging on? All I know is that there is always something to celebrate. To be grateful for. Worth clinking glasses about.
No matter where you are on your journey, I hope that you reflect back on 2018 and find those nuggets worth celebrating. Raise a glass. I’ll raise mine. Let’s clink. Happy New Year! I hope that it’s your best one yet!
Very nicely said. Worth reading more than once.
