A Fresh Start !

“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!” ― C. JoyBell C.

Another year is coming to an end. This year went swooshing by, as though every moment had something  more important to do. Some of us might be feeling helpless and overwhelmed by the end, while some would be exhilarated to welcome the new beginning. Sadly, for some, it might be just another day. Sometimes I wonder, is New Years really that important? or, do we augment it's importance in the desperate need of finding a cause to celebrate life ?

What does New Years say to us ? Resolutions, scrapping old furniture, new clothes, new friends, new work place, most of all, a fresh START. So, does this fresh start come so effortlessly to us  ? Is it that easy to let it all go and never look back ? Well, we all would have disparate answers to such questions. It has never been a cakewalk to anyone, but it all comes to down to one thing at the end, did you SURVIVE?

How do we acquire this much needed beginning ? Do you wait for all of it to fall in place ? Do you commit to your today and not worry for the future ? Do you refrain from breaking down ? Sometimes yes ! Sometimes no ! Also, like they say, leave it onto time. Time heals, time tells, time reveals. Those are clichés, you might say. Only such clichés keep life going and most of them are believed to be true.

The most alluring part about New Year would be about pulling yourself together for a new start and holding onto life with a grappling hook, no matter how painful it has been to deal with things that have gone off the rails in your dreadful past. It all comes to light when you experience an epiphany, don't you think so?

Let's raise the bar with the coming year. Love a little more, hold on a little longer. Few tears, few smiles. Something painful, something beautiful. A dark room, a ray of hope. A broken relationship, a new shoulder to lean on. You fall, you stand up. You fail, you win. Fading dusk, shimmering dawn. Pensive you, Intrepid you. Love, hate. An exuberant journey awaits you.
