If the new year feels all the same to you, you should read this.
A new year just started and we partied and we spread oh so many wishes around! As soon as the dust of all the celebrations settles, we find ourselves living under the same old daily routine. Same problems, same worries, same life. So, what’s all the fuss about? What is “new” really? Is it all the new year’s resolutions that we keep on making – and breaking perhaps, but who is counting, right? Is that new digit at the end of the date making a real difference? What’s “new”, if it feels just the same?
Some of you may think that it’s just no big deal really, just a celebration, a great holiday maybe. A chance to gather the family and exchange gifts and wishes – and bitter remarks, all well intended of course! Others may think that it’s a well-preserved myth that “new” year, probably best served to children. A more prosaic and rather negative view of the hole “new year” thing is that it’s a holiday created and preserved for commercial purposes.
So, what’s really new?
I hate to be the one to break it to you, but all that “new”-thing, just does not happen magically on its own. No, the elves aren’t making everything new in our lives, when the new year comes. If you want the new year to be a new beginning, a new start, you have to work for it. If you want your life to feel differently, you have to change it. And I am not talking about big, dramatic changes – although if you want, just go for them, there is nothing impossible to him who will try! Today I want to talk about small changes, that can make a difference.
Today I want to talk about a great principal, the most important rule in life: treat others the way you want to be treated. Oh, there is so much world-changing power in this life attitude. Just take a minute to think about it. How would our world be like, if we actually practiced that every single day! Can you imagine it? Treat everyone the way you want to be treated – that’s where all the real magic is!
So, let’s make this year really “new” by changing the way we treat the people around us. It’s not that hard, you can try it. And be assured, the reward you will receive will surprise you.
Happy new year everyone! May 2017 be positively life-changing for you! <3
