Seasons of the Soul
Holidays, seasons, and reasons to celebrate . . . and moments to pause and pray
Out with the old . . . in with the new!
Around the world, people gather together to ring in the New Year. There are fireworks displays, parties, toasting, and resolutions. It is a joyous celebration.
The New Year offers a new beginning and a perfect opportunity to release the past and make a fresh start.
Forget about trying to create a new you. Instead, resolve to accept who you are and be yourself . . . only better. Take time to re-evaluate where you want to be at the end of the year with regards to health, physical appearance, relationships, and a sense of well-being.
If you focus on personal growth and those areas where you can bring balance and harmony into your life, everything else will fall into place.
Poem for the New Year
To leave the old with a burst of song;
To recall the right and forgive the wrong;
To forget the things that bind you fast
To vain regrets from the year that’s past;
To have the strength to let go your hold
Of things not worthwhile, of days grown old;
To dare go forth with a purpose true
To the unknown task of a year that’s new;
To help your brother along the road,
To do his work and lift his load;
To add your gift to the world’s good cheer
Is to have and to give a happy New Year.
