It isn’t my birthday and more than likely it isn’t your birthday; however, we celebrate today like it is the most important day of the year. Today we celebrate time. We acknowledge that it has passed us for the last 365 days or 366 for a leap year. Some will shed tears for the past regrets. While, others gather together to toast for past successes and optimism. We proclaim bygones are bygones. We proclaim resolutions to become stronger, smarter, and better people.
Today, I won’t celebrate time because time has never stopped living to celebrate me. Not to sound grim, I just recognize today is not the day to celebrate. I will enjoy the company of solitude this year and focus on planning for tomorrow. I will take the silence of my house as a moment to build for tomorrow’s celebration.
I wish everyone a safe and beautiful New Year. Today, I’ll be toasting with a plan to be a better person.
