The Curtain Closes–A Bright New Year Dawns


What was your most rewarding accomplishment of 2013? What are your dreams as you embark on a new year? What reality will you create for yourself, and those around you?

Colorado seems to plunge into a deep freeze this time of year, and it’s an ideal time for me to cuddle up by the fireplace with my favorite mechanical pencil and a fresh, recycled notebook. The pristine pages beacon my dreams, goals, and to do lists. With each entry, and each passing day, the folio will transform into a smudged, rumpled, and cherished proof of my endeavors.

This juncture arrives every year. It’s ideal for reminiscing, as well as looking forward. It gives us an opportunity to look behind with gratitude for knowledge acquired and goals achieved. The dawn of a new year represents the chance to embark on a meaningful new path–a hopeful, peaceful path of personal growth.

The blank pages before me fill me with wonder as I weigh the best of 2013 against its challenges and lessons. Remarkably, I’ve emerged with a sense of peace that I realize comes only through letting go. I look forward with a grateful heart.

A pristine new year is waiting for my mark, and it’s waiting for yours. What will we make of 2014?
