For most of my life I made a long list of new year resolutions every December 31. Then I did it again the next December 31. And then – well, you know the litany. I finally “kicked the habit” a few years ago.

Here are some of Spirit’s thoughts.


You often hunger for a new beginning in your lives – a place where you can start anew, with no past “baggage” weighing you down. Hence your new year resolutions to celebrate the coming year

It always feels good, doesn’t it, when you have a new beginning? A place from which you feel energized and empowered.

But what usually happens after the new year’s celebration? Often your desires and dreams gradually fade, becoming only dim, distant memories.

What if we said you could feel the excitement, the passion, the joy of the new year more than once a year?

Your lives were never meant to be static and unchanging. You did not come to this lifetime to achieve one goal – whatever that may mean to you – and then to bask in the achievement for the rest of your lives.

Life is not a destination. It’s a journey. And you will never be done with that journey. There is no destination. Not in this life, not in any of your other lives, physical or nonphysical. Your journey is your destination.

You can make each new day, even each new breath, a “new year” – a new beginning. Your lives have no endings, only new beginnings.

And it’s all supposed to be fun. So enjoy the journey. You have more chances at new beginnings than you ever imagined.
