What A New Year Symbolizes | Be Intentional
“Celebrate endings – for they precede new beginnings.” – Jonathan Lockwood (American voice actor)
As time has gone by, we have advanced toward the start of a new era. Numerous things are brought about by a new year. A whole new year can signal the start of fresh life, happiness, or a second chance for some people. As the year has come to a close, we probably mean to start afresh with everything, however by the end of the first few months, practically everyone is back to their old ways.
We begin each year to improve our lives, but as time passes, we lose sight of our original goals and revert to our former ways of living. It is imperative to keep in mind that a new year ushers in a new cycle of 12 months, signifying that change is the only constant in life. In light of this, we should strive to let go of things that do not add value to our lives and avoid holding onto them for an extended period as sometimes change is beneficial for us. A new year represents many diverse things in addition to the message of evolving perspectives, including:
We have many opportunities in the new year. Opportunities to learn something new, and accomplish something new, however, come to those who seize them rather than those who wait for them.
A New Beginning
A year ends and a new one begins. It conveys the idea of a new beginning as it fades away the darkness of our life and makes our life bright. Giving ourselves a second chance to try something we desire but was not working out is excellent. Though our past may not be in our favor, a fresh start will unquestionably put the future on our side. We must deliberately allow our past to improve us rather than make us resentful.
Time Of Awakening
Happiness is born in our hearts when the pain in our lives fades with each passing year. It is up to us to consciously cherish what brings us happiness. Nothing will make us happy unless we decide to be happy since happiness is a choice, not an outcome. Let us, therefore, make a conscious effort to be happy.
Let us be intentional about creating a difference in this new year while keeping in mind the aforementioned characteristics that a new year symbolizes.
