NEW CASTLE —
If I could change anything about the year it would be my reactions to some situations that I maybe didn’t handle in the most rational way possible, but that would be nitpicking.
Obviously I feel as though there is always room for people to change and grow and I suppose that many people use the “New Year’s Resolution” as a catalyst for these changes. I, however, am resolving to continue appreciating and expand upon my appreciation for the gifts that I have been blessed with in the year 2014.
So when the ball drops at midnight on Wednesday, look around you and take it all in. You have made it through another year. It probably hasn’t always been easy, but you did it. Despite the challenges and misfortunes and downright tough times, you have somehow managed to mentally, physically and emotionally survive the 365 days that made up the year 2013.
Congratulations to you and yours. That’s something to celebrate. Now let’s do it again for the next 365.
Happy New Year.
