New Year’s Eve

Why is it that New Year’s Eve is so exciting? I think it is about new beginnings and the prospect of something better in the coming year. It’s not that we really have a new beginning on January 1st any more than we might have one on June 1st, but culturally we have been conditioned to expect something magical in the New Year. At least we like to think that a few of the things on our wish list will come true. We count down the seconds to midnight in unison, kiss our family and friends, and think of those we love who are absent. As I welcome the New Year, I wish that we all will feel the thrill of a new beginning every morning, and with that powerful thought in mind, we might grow, little by little, to become the person that we want to be. May tomorrow be the first day of new beginnings, and may 2008 be a good year for all.
