The clock struck midnight. And the second hand ticked past. Fireworks exploded in city-lit skies. And people yelled, “Happy New Year!” Fingers tapped out texts to far-flung relatives, and phones rang everywhere with exclamations of joy and promise to come. Some twittered their resolutions to each other, and older somes with a smile, avoided making any.
It is customary on this bright first day to look forward way into the year, to make life goals and year goals, but I advise: live in the moment. The moment is peace. It promises nothing and disappoints not. The moment leads to another and another, and soon it leads to another midnight of glittering stars in the night sky, of Happy New Year!!!
