New Day, Every Day


The calendar has changed once again. After the end of a rough year, it's hard not to feel a sense of closure. Though, last year was better financially and job-wise for most of us. After crawling out of a recession, we had more opportunity. We could breathe again. We had many new stores to check out, restaurants to try, breweries to sample with businesses starting up and growing strong.

The changing of the calendar year tends to bring out a renewed vigor and make us hopeful for a good year to come. I understand that symbolism, but we should look forward to that next day no matter the month or time of year. We should look forward to the next day with resolve to make it better than the one before. We should reach out to our loved ones and wish them a happy new day. Every night should have a toast to the coming day. I try to live my life this way whether I'm celebrating with a cup of tea or a sparkling cocktail. Life is to short and hard at times not to celebrate and look toward what's to come.

It's a short message this year. Just a gentle reminder that December 31 is no different than January 1. It's what we make of it. That said, reflect, plan, participate in cathartic rituals, and feel the energy. Do what you need to do.
