This is not a post about making resolutions.
With the dawn of a new year, resolutions, or the lack thereof, are also within the horizon. Although I completely agree that resolutions are important- that resolving our shortcomings of the previous year is significant to our growth as living beings- we should not lose sight of what a new year really is: a fresh start. A clean slate. A new chapter. We, you and I, know what we need to improve. We know the habits and the mistakes we need to correct, and we will. On the other hand, there were the good times, too. Events that touched our inner selves; memories that made us want to stay in those precise moments.
But that is past tense.
2014 was great, but it is now a mere artifact of the past.
Today is 2015.
Like the picture above, the details are unfocused, but that can’t take away from the beauty of the colours. If anything, the bokeh image is even more striking- there’s some mystery to it. That’s how I perceive 2015: I may not know what will happen yet, but I can rejoice in the beauty of the unknown.
A fresh start.
A clean slate.
A new chapter.
Let’s get the pen on the page and make some magic.
