New Beginnings
I live by the academic calendar and have for most of my life, so for me the new year starts in early fall, not January. The beginning of the new school years brings freshness, excitement, and a time for new beginnings. In earlier years, the excitement was accompanied by the smell of newly waxed floors, clean chalkboards, and new faces in the classroom. Today, new faces still bring a promise of new beginnings–warm friendships and interesting conversations to come.

New beginnings–a redundant phrase–yet it captures a human experience filled with hope. Not all our hopes bear fruit but as a friend of mine once said: “It’s okay to get your hopes up, because you can always get them up again if you miss the goal.” A new year helps us get our hopes up, hence we celebrate the new year.

Let’s cherish our dreams, follow the spiral of the new seasons, and enjoy the consciousness that unites us all. It’s time to get your hopes up again.
