All different words that mean exactly the same thing – Parting.
We part with things daily.
So many little moments that for one reason or another escape our attention.
However, there are times when a goodbye must be acknowledged.
Such is the case of New Years Eve.
It is a night of reflection and a time to ponder the fork in the proverbial road.
The new year gives us pause as we remember times past, people we have loved or lost and the events (good or bad) that have shaped us.
We tend to take stock of what we have and who we are.
And then attempt to better ourselves, situations and relationships.
There are new diets to try.
Excercise regimens to begin, houses to organize and souls to purge.
We decide our path for the next 365 days on this evening. Making lists on paper and within our heads.
The bright light of the future shines upon us, illuminating fresh possibilities, loves and spiritual heights.
But it is important to take a moment to remember what was as well.
Because too quickly, the memories of the past year will fade into darkness.
Allowing one’s self to momentarily revel in emotion is essential to letting go.
Because whether you’re ready or not the past is rapidly slipping away.
Don’t be afraid.
If you allow the universe to ebb and flow, you’ll find your way.
I choose too believe that my destiny holds beauty, delicious love and great fulfillment.
So tonight, at the stroke of midnight, I intend to walk forward.
With peace of soul.
An available and love filled heart.
Courage and grace.
Happy New Year.
