A New Year, A New Beginning

The year 2012 was a challenging one which is why everyone had looked forward to the next year 2013 with hopes that it will be a promising one, a new year, a new beginning.

Even though one would say that fate can also play a hand on current events which would lead to future events, mainly, life is what we make of it most of the time.

Therefore, a new year is like a clean slate. We write our own path and it’ll become our present and when that year comes eventually to an end, we look back at it as our own past and learn from it as we look forward to write out our future, using the past as our guide. We practically are living at the moment, that is the present time.

Overall, one cannot exactly predict what our future might be. We can only guess and strive to achieve our goals. Anything else in between whether good or bad becomes our learning experiences and part of the chapters of our individual books of our lives. It becomes part of us and makes us in a way, the person that we and others see.

Perhaps that’s why life is really interesting and full of surprises.

Quoting Forrest Gump, “My Mama says that life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you have until you open it.”

Happy New Year,my friends! Bonne Annee, mon ami!
