This is the last day of 2012 and every year at this time we reflect on the past year and look forward to the new one. I think we all feel that we have an opportunity to start anew and begin or continue the things that we want in our lives. We think about new year's resolutions swearing that we will do better by sticking to our diet and exercise regimens in the new year. We vow to stop bad habits and begin new activities that will make us happy and successful.
There is something that happens in our psyche that empowers us with the chance to start fresh. Have you ever started a diet on a Thursday or at the end of the month? We get ourselves all prepared for the new beginning whether the first of the week, month or year. Along with that comes the renewed energy to do better and the positive thinking that motivates us. Our thoughts and beliefs are the foundation to our success.
So as we all do every new year's eve, I will think about what I want to improve in my life and vow to do my best. We all need a fresh beginning from a year that had lots of sadness and loss. Will 2013 be any better? I think it will start off to be because we are all consciously focusing on the new, the better, and make it come true.
There is a song that goes, "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me." Another statement says "Be the peace you want to see in the world." If we all endeavor to do our part it will be a great year.
Happy New Year to All
