Here we are with another New Year’s ritual. We get to look ourselves “in the eye” — our raw selves. Maybe we should every day, but as ‘homemade OCD candidates’, it’s not very healthy. Give thanks for times like these when we are self-reflective and opposite moments of unfettered living.
“frankly my dear… [a life lived unhappy sucks].”
-j. Daniels [adaptation of “Gone with the Wind”]
The New Year was an ancient lunar celebration in March. Julius Caesar changed it to honor “Janus, the Roman god of beginnings,” who looks back and forward.
“The practice of making resolutions for the new year is … among the ancient Babylonians, who made promises in order to earn the favor of the gods … (They would … vow to pay off debts and return borrowed farm equipment.)”
US celebrations vary by region, but resolutions seem most important. In
this spirit, are a few revelations and reflections that could help look back into the past and forward into the future. Check out conversations on car accidents, as the accident that damaged this car, brought on the year’s reflection. Here’s the ‘kick in the butt’ to remember and begin:
This life is a creation for me. Everything around me is mine [and of course I am for it all too.] Resolve: Be proud of all.
I am alive for my purpose. Resolve: Be proud of purpose found.
I am divine. Resolve: Be alive!
