Renewal, Reincarnation, Reinvention…
These words spring to mind at the start of the year, than at any other time. But do we actually get to do that? No matter how much we wish, as the date changes, can we change too? Can we purge away the tiny black holes within us to emerge renewed and baby soft in the new year; rid of all our devils?
The things that hold us back from being all that we can possibly be — this is that once-in-a-year chance, a clean break that we all get — to shatter all odds and be truly ourselves. Time however, does not part down the middle and show us a shining new self or world. From 23.59 to 00.01, it’s the same banal everyday midnight, spiced-up a bit; depending on how you are celebrating.
So how do we reconstruct ourselves? How will these new year resolutions work?
What if the New Year actually began in Spring-time? When the earth truly awakes from its winter slumber and the new green celebrates! Would it be easier for us to awaken as well?
I, wait for the chill to pass and then fly!
