It has already happened across much of the earth before it happens here. The New Year, filled with hopes and dreams and schemes and screams, is before us like freshly fallen snow. Be careful where you step as your marks are the first and you want them to mean something.
Sound familiar? It should.
It was just about what each of us thought last year at this time. And the year before that. And, truth to tell, for all the years before that which any of us can or care to remember. Maybe just me, but I think not, we all love brave beginnings-and 2013 will never be as new as it is now.
Okay, it's a little less new now than a moment ago, but still. Better hurry and make your mark-it's getting older and more shop-worn by the second and soon enough we'll be glad rid of it and looking forward to its successor.
Except, this year, this time, in this moment, make yourself seen and heard. Be someone and do something for someone else. Everyone, everywhere needs a certain someone at sometime. We, you and I, can each be that someone for someone else. There'd be no distance that could hold us back. Ever.
Welcome 2013. Bring it.
