New Beginnings

new year

I love new beginnings…I love Mondays, the advent of new months and the turn of years.

To me they feel deliciously fresh and full of promise like a field of newly fallen snow when the sun shines on it….glittery, undisturbed, pristine.  They bring hope and happy anticipation for what’s to come.

I use the new year as a little marker to reflect on the days that have passed, to think about what I’d like for the future and to plot a course so that I have a good chance of filling the days ahead with moments I can be proud of.  After all what more can I ask? At the end of my days I’d like to be able to look back with a sense of satisfaction…at how I pushed against my personal weaknesses, how I made adjustments and improvements and how I conducted myself (especially under pressure).  I don’t reach for perfection….that’s a fool’s pursuit. I simply strive to be better in the future than I was in the past.  This sentiment permeates everything I do and it’s a resolution I set for myself day after day, month after month and year after year.

Today, on the verge of 2013,  I send you wishes for wonderful new adventures, good fortune and full hearts.

May the loads you carry be light…
