For so much of my life I remember looking forward to New Year’s Eve. It was the day to reflect and celebrate that I’d made it through another year of life. I looked at New Year’s Day as a chance to start over. What I know now is that all those symbolic events actually occur every day. We don’t need to wait for a holiday anymore than we have to wait for someone or something to “make” us happy. Yes it’s true that there are circumstances beyond our control. It is however our attitude about those circumstances that we have control over. When we stop to realize that our happiness and our misery are all self-created then we realize that every moment is a new opportunity. This New Year… If you want to make a resolution… make the resolution to become acutely aware of the power you have… every moment.
