A New Year
I have some weird quirky habits; I tend to over analyze and over dramatize everything, I enjoy taking bath (not necessarily weird unless you’re a guy like me, people tend to think it’s weird.) One weird habit I do have and I blame my mother for it, is that I like my drinks cold, almost frozen. It only really gets annoying till you live with me. We all have things we have learned over our lives that have become a second natured part of our daily routines. We have less than a week and another year will have gone by. All of our firm stances on world relations, war, and politics mean nothing when the year is over; because all we learned from another year ending is that even time itself ends. We on the other hand are an optimistic people; the New Year means embarking on new challenges, a second chance at a failed attempt, or more time with a loved one. I want to share this little nugget of wisdom from the Hebrew language. The word used to describe something “new” is tariy which means to be fresh or moist. The word “new” was less of a second opportunity but a quenching of the hopes for the New Year. It is a promise of new experiences, new boundaries being pushed and new heights being exceeded. Be excited for this coming year, it holds great things for you and I. things you have worked for your entire life will be culminated this coming year. Limits will be broken, dreams will be birthed. The New Year is a New day for you and I. let’s embrace the “new” the Hebrew promises’ it to be an exciting year. So instead of vigorously saying, ” it’s the New Year.” Let’s make it personal and say, “It’s my New Year!”
Tomorrow I will share a deeper meaning to the word year and see what wisdom we can find in it.
