Another year is drawing to a close. I know it’s a man-made distinction, but it still lends itself to a bit of contemplation. Where have I been this year? Where do I hope to go in the coming hours, days, months?
One thing becomes clearer as time passes. Each choice we make takes us down a specific path, and once we’ve made enough of them, it’s more difficult to change paths. Not impossible, thank God! But not as easy as it may have once been.
I’m not going to make any New Year’s resolutions this year. Offhand, I can’t think of any I’ve actually kept for very long. But if I remember, daily, that I each choice I make determines my future path, it may nudge me to make more mindful choices.
How about you? Happy New Year, however you plan to embrace it!
