A New Year or...

The excitement of a new year was contagious. People were making plans to travel or gather with friends and family while others were content to stay at home with loved ones. Although everyone was cheery, there was a paradoxical sad optimism; “Happy New Year!” was followed by hugs and kisses. Right then I thought, “Well, happy is a farfetched wish.” Everyone has happy days, but we also have bad and sad ones too. Then I thought, “Why not say ‘Beautiful New Year’?” since beauty comprises all the experiences life has for us. Although it’s hard to perceive it at the moment, the short and long-term hardships and challenges we face have a twisted, deep beauty. Maybe it’s all about the beauty of experience and learning although the road can be draining and heart wrenching. But I guess that’s life, and it’s beautiful just as it is.

Have a beautiful 2011 everyone...
