A new beginning … A new life.
Why do we celebrate new year? Is it just a number or does it signify something more? The Mayans predicted that the world will end in 2012 but yet here I am writing this post, and you reading it years after that. So does this give me a reason to celebrate that I am not dead as prophesied? Or is it just one of the trends and norms of the society?
I think not.
This new year is all about new beginnings, new relations, new thoughts and new memories. Yes the previous year was good and brought its fair share of memories, and there’s no denying that those memories will stay with us for the rest of our lives. However, the excitement of what lies ahead and how much happier the next year has the potential to be, is what makes me celebrate. And being surrounded by the bliss of care from the people I care about, being happy for them, and seeing everyone happy is the meaning of celebration for me.
New year is just another milestone that reminds us to forget the bad things that happened the previous year. It gives an opportunity to reflect back upon the things to be thankful for that you still have and may have in the future, and stop moaning about what didn’t happen … Because lets face it – That chapter is closed.
Time to write a new one.
Happy New Year!
