The sound of the spine cracking. The fresh scent of virgin paper. One of the best things about the New Year is the empty pages of a new day-timer (something I won’t relinquish despite our digital age).
New Year’s Day is symbolic of new beginnings, fresh starts, resolutions for change. It’s a day to open your heart and mind to promise and possibility, to write your own story on the virgin pages of your life. Step off the edge. Be fascinated. Stay curious. Discover new joy.
Travel into the New Year carrying kindness and wisdom; share it freely. Listen closely and speak mindfully. Smile when no one is looking. Redefine prosperity. Bask in the light that others bring into your life; recognize that you will learn from everyone.
Appreciate that Now is the only moment in which we live. Acknowledge and respect the negative; warmly embrace the positive.
If you make only one resolution for 2013, let it be that you live each day as New Year’s Day.
