Y is for HAPPY NEW YEAR
Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom
that experience can instill in us.Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
Come, gentlemen, I hope we shall drink down all unkindness.
Shakespeare - Merry Wives of Windsor
The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. - G.K. Chesterton
Welcome to the Year 2013! I can't believe it's been 13 years since we welcomed in the new millenium when we all waited on tenterhooks to see if the world would implode! Well, apparently life goes on everywhere and we continue to try to "get it right," as Oprah says. I don't make resolutions at New Year's, as I try to live my life properly every day. However, sometimes it's good to reflect on the past in order to make improvements for the future. The year 2012 had some good and some bad - at home and on the world front. So whatever I might do personally - whether it be to pray, to contribute financially, to befriend others, or simply share my words - I will do it. I also encourage YOU to do it, too! Keep going even if you want to give up on your resolutions. Make 2013 the best Year ever!
What a year it will be! Feel free to share your thoughts about 2012, yearnings for 2013, or your New Year's resolutions.
