Among all the excitement and anticipation preceding New Years Day, put into perspective January 1st is really just another day of the year. Aside from the fact that it follows December 31st and therefore “marks” the very first calendar day of a brand new year, it really is just another Friday.
It’s what this day stands for that really means so much. This single day signifies that you not only made it through another 365 days or 8,760 hours or 525,600 minutes, but that you have been graced with the beginning of an entirely new set of moments.
Set before you like a blank sheet of paper for you to write whatever story you please. This day refreshes our outlook on life, it breathes new energy into our soul, and gives us a renewed sense of hope for what may come.
Good bye 2009! Hello New Year!
