Happy New Year !!!
Genuine beginnings begin within us, even when they are brought to our attention by external opportunities. ~ William Throsby Bridges
Happy New Year my friends, I’ve seen a lot of posts this New Year’s Eve from people saying good riddance to the year and looking forward to the next. These posts make me a bit sad. I know for a lot of people very hard and horrible things have happened this year. Some of you have suffered incredible losses, personally I know this year was hard for my family with the passing of my Uncle, a really wonderful man.
Even tonight as a I write this my mother is in the hospital and not doing well and perhaps even harder, my sister is with her watching, helpless other than providing comfort. There may be nothing harder than watching a loved one in pain.
As human beings we often focus far too much on the bad things, our pain, our losses. No matter how hard 2014 was for you, I’m sure there were good things as well, this is why I posted the other night about the jar of good things.
Don’t start 2015 lamenting and focusing on the bad things, remember the good things as well, it was a year like any other, it was full of the good and the bad. But each year was beautiful, each year made us happy and each year taught us things. So stay positive and have 365 happy days my friends or as many as you can have.
Happy New Year! ~ Rev Kane
