Another year behind us and a new one lies infront of us. I love new beginnings. A new year brings us just that.
A chance to wipe the slate clean, pick ourselves up, moving forward into a bright new future.
I’m going to breakdown the meaning of all three words.
According to Google happy is a feeling or showing pleasure or contentment.
How does one show a feeling? A smile, a post with happy faces, babies, puppies, kittens a favorite teams win.
When someone says; ” I just want you to be happy” what are they really saying? Can we be happy without smiling, posting positve and uplifting sayings on social media?
I’ve learned to be content with my life just the way it is. I may not have big fancy houses, top of the make in motor vehicles and all the material things that people associate with “happiness”. What I do have is a loving husband, children, grandchildren, family and friends. That makes me rich in happiness.
New is defined by Google dictonary as not exsiting before; made; introduced, or discovered recently or now for the first time.
Every day brings a new beginning. It is up to us to make it count.
Merriam Webster defines year as
a : the period of about 3651/4 solar days required for one revolution of the earth around the sunb : the time required for the apparent sun to return to an arbitrary fixed or moving reference point in the skyc : the time in which a planet completes a revolution about the sun <two Mercury years>
The whole of life is but a moment of time. It is our duty, therefore to use it, not to misuse it. -Plutarch
