Happy New Year?
Many people are excited about the new year which is upon us. Tonight marks the transition from 2010 to 2011 as both a chronological change and a metaphorical shift from old to new. This shift is what many are excited about.
From a literal standpoint, the new year is nothing more than a break in the measurement and grouping of a series of events in an orderly timeframe. Whether you liked or disapproved of the majority of the events which took place within that grouping gives clues to your feelings toward the coming year.
Vast numbers of people have expressed to me recently, their longing to say goodbye to the pains they experienced within the time frame called 2010. A lot of bad news and difficult times have been shared and told of during the year. Also, many people have shared their triumphs for which they attribute to the ending year. In the end, it is all perspective.
Many people use this break in measurement as an excuse to party and celebrate life itself, while many others look toward it as a moment of hope of mystery and of possibility. No one knows what is in store for any of us in 2011.
I personally will continue to aspire toward my writing career, while taking care of my family and being a husband/father to them. I’ll also do my best to keep our heads above the sinking waters of Michigan. My wife will continue to work wonders in her career while taking care of our family by being the best wife/mother she can be.
Whatever wonders and dreams you hold in your heart kind reader, I pray will find their home in the coming year. The future is always such a fluctuating entity no one can predict it, but we can all strive to fill it with our wishes. And that is my wish for all of us, that in the coming year our dreams can come true.
