A Beginning: Happy New Year

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language; / And next year’s words await another voice; / And to make an end is to make a beginning.TS Eliot

The new decade is sprouting around the world, following the slowly rolling arc of midnight. The year ends hour by hour, as the sparkling new decade brings a promise of new beginnings. The end of one thing signals the beginning of another. Root your spirit this day in the ephemeral foam of optimism.

Let the shifting sands of time overtake anxious concerns and sad regret. Release the old wounds and welcome the internment of long-suffered troubles. Put pessimism beneath the new ground and plant the seeds of hope atop the pile. Vow to let the positive light of your increased happiness warm the hearts of those you love. Shine on.

Affirming calmness adds an effervescent spark to each day. Fan the spark of New Year’s joy into a flame that lasts throughout the year. Enter this brand new decade wearing a smile and walking with a lighter step. Be gracious and kind to those you meet and carry yourself with the dignity you deserve as a child of the timeless divine spirit.

The old decade is melting away. Ring in the new year with joyous self-confidence. Breathe in the promise of a new day, a new year, a new decade, and a renewed positive outlook on life. Be safe. Be well. A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 🙂

To celebrate New Year’s I have made my semi-autobiographical novella “Positive Light” available for free on Amazon for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
