The feeling of a new beginning, the feeling of change, of start, the feeling of new. That is what a lot of us experience when we are fortunate enough to see a New Year. For many it is a new adventure, excitement, commitments, resolutions and more. For others it is just the incredible determination of fighting through problems, sadness, illness and more, in hope for better fortune and a different outcome with a refreshed new start.
Either way we look at it, it is always exciting to begin another year. There is always hope, opportunity, desire. And even though the year may not have ended as we wished, this is our chance to begin the new year in stride, with the correct attitude, with the correct focus. A moment to decide if we are going to make the best of it or just let it slip away. If we are going to learn from our past mistakes and correct them, or just simply… repeat them.
This is the time when a lot of people make resolutions. They write down a to-do list, one of things to accomplish; things they call goals. They may do it for added motivation or simply to get their ideas in order, or maybe because the majority of the people are doing it. Many of the items on that list will go undone. Me, I don’t have a list of goals for a new year. Why, you ask? Because a New Year is just the beginning of another calendar year. Life is not measured that way in my mind. Goals, achievements should not commence and conclude in a calendars year. Goals and expectations are everyday matters. Everyday is a new moment to accomplish your goals. Life should be lived everyday and your goals should always be a work in progress, where the ultimate mission is to get them accomplished: focused, determined and tirelessly.
So with that in mind I want to wish you all a Happy New Year, and hope you all accomplish your goals and resolutions. Be it in this calendar year or whenever your focus and determination allows you to do it.
