Crazy things go through my head as I’m thinking ahead and rounding the bend into the New Year. You reading this are saying, “It’s not even Halloween yet. What are you talking about?”
Well let me explain. If you are going to be thankful at Thanksgiving and wishful at Christmas, it has to include the New Year because you have to include the past, the present and the future in all your thankfulness and wishfulness. So this means thinking of the New Year now.
Fact is, whether it’s consciously or unconsciously thought about, New Years is always part of our lives. Every time we talk about hopes and dreams for the future, that’s all the New Years to get there. Every time we talk about family plans and retirement and vacations, that’s all the New Years to set them in place. We are a never ending line of New Years always in motion to get to the next one to see what it will be like. And we always hope that the one coming will be better than the one that’s leaving.
So you see, our future is really all of our New Years to come, which we are always looking forward to and thinking about all the time. So I’m really not too early to be thinking about New Years.
Interesting perspective isn’t it? What do you think?
