If you know me or have followed my blog posts, you know how much I love Mondays because they are like mini New Years Days every week. Today is New Years Day, my favorite day of the entire year.
I love the energy of New Years Day. My parents used to throw a New Years Eve party when I was a kid. My family came over. We sang karaoke, danced, played games, and ate great food. We would all gather in one room and watch the ball drop in New York City.
"Happy New Year!" the entire house exclaimed. I loved energy, the positivity, the happiness, the optimism. Everyone hugged each other and exchanged blessings and well wishes. Then we went back to our party, enjoying life and enjoying each other.
No matter what happened up to that point, the New Year brought with it new optimism, a chance to build upon past efforts, grace from past failures, and a reminder to clear your plate for new opportunities. It's a day that represents the future like nothing else.
