Happy New Year

to love, laughter and renewal...

to love, laughter and renewal…

I have found myself in great introspection over this holiday period, and very happily so.  One thing that was puzzling me, however, was why I was avoiding the New Year’s Eve parties and not even wanting to wish people a happy new year.

But I finally realised why, and it is not because I am a “bah humbug” sort of person…

It is because I dislike the finality of reducing the “new year, new opportunity” to one day per year!  Don’t you think there are more possibilities offered if we see every single day as a chance to start anew and make great things happen?

That is what I have vowed to do, at the very least.

I sincerely do wish you a happy new year, but I will be thinking the same thing tomorrow, and the next day, and the next…

The possibilities are endless.  I am vowing, today, to spend more time with friends who stimulate my thinking and make me laugh.  I am also intent on doing more swimming and more skiing, preferably in good company, but also alone if I so wish.  There will be more worthwhile reading and less messing around on Facebook.

So much of this is stuff that I think about and (mostly!) act on all the time, so 31st of December just does not ring the bell for me.  But it is important.  Seize the moment and decide, today, and every day, what is important, what you want more of, and what more you have to give…

To many, many tomorrows and renewals, and above all to love, laughter and lightness of being!
