A NEW DAY..........A NEW YEAR............HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE......



Another year has passed....
We count them by days.....
THE YEARS

But can we really remember what really happened on one certain day...say....January  13th, 2011 or August the 3rd of the same year ~~~


I believe we should keep track of the years by EVENTS.....

Oh yes, you say, I remember....
The year of the great flood
The year of the great fire
The year of the potato ~~ when eating massive amounts of carbs was the only thing keeping you sane (O:
The year the U.S. was attacked
The year my grandson was born
The year I graduated
The year I married

One year slides into another so easily....
Really.....they are just numbers on a calendar

The events are what should mark the years....

The numbers are just a method of tracking time.


I'm going to make this coming year the year of acceptance and growth.....everything changes.....nothing stays the same.


What will you label the year 2012?
~~Just me thinking out loud today~~


HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.....I'm so grateful you are in my life.

  2. Hello Josette, I have enjoyed your thoughtful post. What would I label 2012? Being. I want the year to be characterized by my "being" more.
    Happy New Year! I wish for you what ever it is that truly brings a smile to your face : )
    Hugs,
    Terri

  3. Acceptance and growth -- what a brilliant, beautiful way to approach a new year...keep these thoughts close to hand! I look at each new year with fresh eyes and chances to make a difference, to get it right and to discover...to face whatever comes my way with grace .. and keep laughter close to hand!!

    Happy New Year to you and yours! xo

  5. The older one gets, the faster the years pass by. This year will be one of change for me. The changes? I don't know yet. Perhaps I will finally retire. Happy New Year to you and yours.

  6. All good thoughts here. Events certainly DO mark the years I think. (I do have an account of most of the days though, as I keep a journal)
    However...2011 FOR ME will always be remembered as:
    the year I had to deal with the loss of my son
    depression and loneliness
    weight gain
    mothers serious operation
    dad's failing health
    It certainly was for me a year of GROWTH...had to or it would kill me I guess. Adjustments. Acceptance.
    I hope for 2012
    I LEARN MORE FAITH, ABOUT WHO I AM, ABOUT WHERE I WANT TO BE
    ...................
    we can always start off the new year with Hope, right??
    best to you too

  15. Everything changes. If we can truly accept that and make our peace with it, our lives will be filled with the peace of God. A beautiful start to the new year. Thank you!

  16. Happy to start a new year fresh. Feel like 2012 is going to be a year of learning a lot about myself and getting my "house" in order.

    Happy New Year Jo!

  17. I totally agree with remembering years by the events from the years rather than by the days. My years are marked by the events of the year. Happy 2012 my friend! Hugs, xo
