January 1st. A new year. In one sense, it’s just an arbitrary choice of date determined by a long-established calendar. Yet in another, it’s a cosmic reality of our planet returning to a particular place around the sun. It’s in that second sense that we can all move forward as one.
This year I’m focusing on joy. Staying present to notice opportunities for joy, and sharing that joy with those around me.
Here on New Year’s Day, the joy is in the opportunity for new beginnings. A fresh start or a new chapter, we all have a new year of possibilities before us.
