"Sea and Sky" Moving from one to another

New Year’s Eve is a time of reflection. As I look back on 2015, I can’t believe everything that’s happened. I went from a place of pain and anger to one of endless possibilities. I connected with authors. I did guest posts and articles on various sites. I published 4 books in 5 months. I took classes and read books which gave me a new understanding of myself, my goals, and direction.

Most importantly, however, I discovered and embraced a depth and clarity of purpose.

It was a good year full of transformation and preparation.

As I look back, I see how it was preparation, though at the time I didn’t recognize it. Standing at the cusp of 2016, I feel how everything in 2015 laid the groundwork for the coming year. I don’t know exactly what will happen in 2016 – the future is always an unknown. What I do know is I am wiser, stronger, and better in every way than I was a year ago. I know what I need to do to greet the next phase in my writing and speaking life. Because of this, I’m excited.

Then again, I’m excited every day.

New Year’s is symbolic. It is the beginning of a year, but it is also just a day. The nice thing about days is every one starts out new. Every morning is a new beginning of a new kind of year. You get a fresh start every morning. Every day is full of amazing possibilities for wonders, miracles, and joy.

If this is true, it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday – only what happens right now.

Every day is exciting, wonderful, and beautiful. New Year’s is only special because we make it so – but what if we held that special reverence for every day? Amazing things would happen.

So enjoy New Year’s, because it is a symbol. Still, don’t forget the glory of every morning. I think you’ll find it’s special in it’s own way.
