While my first thought is to say ‘Happy New Year!’ the rational true part says, ‘Have a year that is full of whatever you desire it to be!’Any day we rise and greet the moment could be the first day of a New Year; the beginning of 365 consecutive days and counting rather than the result of the page turning on the calendar and adding a one to the designated year.Those are my thoughts but in having a discussion with my husband he brought a varying idea to the table, which I had to consider and actually agree. He indicated that people need to grasp onto the idea that beginning a new year such as 2011 to 2012 also brings with it renewed hopes, dreams and optimism especially for those who are suffering, down-trodden and/or lost. They need to hold on to something tangible that brings with it transformed faith or altered assurance that the next year will be an improved spirit and more gentle on the soul.So if this is your outlook for a new beginning, bless you and may you achieve all you hope for and desire.
