“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice; to make an end is to make a beginning.” – T.S Elliot
So it’s the morning of the last day of the new year. So much potential in that (fingers crossed). For many of us, 2011 brought so many ups and downs that it’s difficult to sort out what has happened. I’m trying to avoid making too many plans for the Big Night and instead journaling with coffee: What am I leaving behind? What am I moving towards? What am I going to resolve from this past year? What beginnings am I in the process of making?
In the midst of an ending, how do we create a beginning? See the potential. Know what’s ripe for change. We’re always knee deep in the fodder of a new start.
It really helps me to see all that 2011 has brought to me – so much can happen in a day much less an entire year. And that helps set things to right again – to see that 2012 has the power to be just as transformative, just as joyful, just as full and rich. We’re blessed! Let’s live like we are!
