Whenever we get to a new year people say stuff like "let's hope next year is better" or "goodbye to this awful year." Though it is true that each year is going to have good and bad it seems that the bad memories and experiences are the ones carried on into the new year. The new year is a new start, you now have 365 more days to do whatever you want. It is up to you to make it good or bad. Before we move on though I like to take a moment to remember the good stuff that happened in the past year because it never seems to be remembered. The bad experiences and memories are the ones that should be left behind, not the good ones. However, it seems to be the opposite.
Like mentioned in previous entries humans usually remember the bad over the good most of the time. Though there are exceptions, it seems to be the case. Especially around the time of new year. By remembering them, people seem to think they can leave them behind when the clock strikes midnight and the new year begins. However, one should not remember the bad but the good. As we go into the new year it is better to enter with a positive attitude.
I challenge is to enter the new year not wanting to leave the bad behind but as a time to celebrate the good that happened. It is better to enter something new remembering the good then wanting to not repeat the bad. It is a time for new beginnings but also a time to celebrate all the good that has happened.
Happy New Years!
