The End and the Beginning

The year 2015 comes to a close in four and a half hours for me, from this writing. I expect 2016 will likely slip quietly into existence like the snowflakes that fell and dissolved the day before Christmas last week.

Some people believe in looking back, perhaps with their lists of goals or resolutions, upon the previous year, to set new goals, to identify patterns, to start new habits, to find closure.

Sometimes I'm like that.

And some people simply accept that one year is ending and another is beginning, and that the first day of a new year usually feels a lot like yesterday, and that looking back isn't always beneficial or to be recommended.

I can be that way, too.

You know best ... your year, your hopes, your dreams, your ups and downs, your challenges, your goals, yourself.

Will you take time tonight to reflect? To celebrate? To mourn? To remember?

Tomorrow will be another new day in another new year in your life. A fresh chance. There are 86,400 seconds in one day.

From where I'm sitting, that doesn't seem like so very many.

Make them count.

Wishing you and yours a very happy New Year's!
