Today's thought

A new year

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2024.

One perspective: Today is just another day. You’ll get up, do your things, accomplish some stuff, and live your life as if there’s nothing even remotely special going on. Every day is a gift, but there’s nothing that REALLY makes today different, other than the calendar changing.

Another perspective: Today is special because it’s the first of the year. The past year is gone, never to be lived again, and you’re breathing in the fresh air of a brand-new age. Do your best to cherish it for its specialness, and look for ways in which it stands to be memorable and great.

The kicker: Every day of your life contains this duality of normal vs special. It’s totally up to you how you choose to perceive it, and what kind of effect this perspective will have on your actions. Days can be monotonous and routine — and that’s okay sometimes! But they can also be celebrated in every which way for the genuine miracle that living another day brings forth.

May your new year be full of renewed energy, overflowing peace, and rejuvenated joy to see the world for the remarkable beauty that it holds. I'm glad you're here.
