January 1, 2017 – gosh that feels good to write that. It’s a new year – all fresh and virginal.
It’s a bit weird how one tiny second that takes us from one year to the next is so liberating. And it’s all in the mind. Nothing has really changed, but the power of our collective minds makes it so.
We have a new year and new challenges to deal with. But, we have fresh hope and a sense of a new beginning.
True, some folk are still on a rather warped and destructive path of their sense of justice… that’s life. We don’t have to let them win though.
We have a break up with Europe to face and an uncertain and controversial person about to enter one of the most powerful posts in the world. Wars rage and famine continues to take lives all too easily.
Change is going to be the buzz word of 2017. Change can scare folk rigid. But, it can also deliver pleasant and unexpected surprises.
Like that job you took that you hated at first and then really fell in love with, as you adapted to the change. Or the move to a house that didn’t feel like home and then you cried, when you had to leave it and move on.
We can let the world and its current events scare us , or we can choose to live and see the good things.
Wherever you are and whoever you are I wish you a good and peaceful 2017. May you rise to your challenges and find the good in this weird world – that is of our making.
How about you? Do you love or fear change? Does 2017 fill you with hope?
Thanks for reading – it is truly appreciated.
