Little Rock, Arkansas - Spring 2011
In America as soon as Halloween has passed, Thanksgiving is upon people's minds. And while Thanksgiving comes and goes, signs of Christmas are everywhere. Now that Christmas has been celebrated, bits of wrapping paper and holiday trinkets will linger, Hanukah will persist for two more nights, and thoughts of the coming new year are even stronger.
The new year offers the sense of opportunity for renewal. The date marker not only the start to a new calendar where the cycle starts anew, but the commencement of a fresh period of time. An occasion for changes. I like to think every day of the year can be a day to modify your life to live to the fullest, but if a concrete break from old and new is helpful, I can embrace that (this is, after all, tradition). I, too, am cooking up a list of goals for 2012 - professionally and personally. Are you?
