There’s something about New Years Eve that always makes me emotional. I take a look at all that has happened in one year and I am absolutely speechless. The amount of growth that one individual can go through is astonishing. There have been so many positives in my life; they make the negatives seem so minuscule.
Although the difference between one year and another is only a second, the change represents something much greater. For those who made it to see the next year, the celebration is not only a tradition but also a personal, spiritual and emotional restoration.
I see the new year as a chance to start over, to look at what I have done in the past and how I can create a better outcome for myself in the future. For a moment, I almost struggle with the thought that I am being pushed out of such a great year and I can do nothing about it. Then, I come to grips and reassure myself that the next year will be even better.
I believe this annual celebration of change is essential and motivates us to be our best selves. So, instead of the cliche saying “new year, new me” I say “New year, even better me.”
