This New Year’s Eve Kendall and I were having a small conversation over how the New Year that we celebrate does not internally feel like we are entering a new year; we join in the tradition, but it feels like forcing a puzzle piece that does not fit. Perhaps, it is simply that we want the time to soak in the Glory of Christmas AND to not rush into the precious, tender, and joyful act of seeing and recounting the movement of our life thus far and ponder over–dream, wish, plan–the year to come. Maybe, it is also because the symbolism and meaning we have associated with the turning of the calendar to a New Year resonates with Kendall and I more at the turning of Spring- a time when we emerge from the low energy of Winter and are greeted in our awakening by new life.
So, this year we did things a little differently. We relaxed, did a little reminiscing, a little looking forward, a champagne toast at midnight, and a lot of enjoying the company of one another. Kendall and I would love to hear some of your traditions and where you are in life. If you would like to, make yourself at home and share a comment below. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
