If ever there were a nugget to sum up the New Year's Eve mindset, this would have to be it. The past year is falling off the shoulders like a heavy cloak. And the coming year is a fresh page on a thick tablet and we are the ones dipping a fountain pen into ink, poised to write a new story. This may be the year you hope to finish your novel, fall in love, love the people in your life more, go back to school, finish school, find good work, find a fun hobby, grow a garden, grow a dream, grow in faith.
Here's the great news: it's all possible! And that's infinitely worthy of a champagne toast, swirls of confetti and the Times Square glitter ball dropping as the Guy Lombardo orchestra plays Auld Lang Syne. Dwell in it on this eve of possibilities. And again and again in the fresh start granted us each morning of our lives as the sun comes up anew.
