2014 is almost over, and here we stand, balancing on the threshold, about to cross into the year of 2015 which promises us fresh beginnings and a chance to start over; a chance to forget the mistakes we’ve made and be reborn.
But we’re fooling ourselves if we think that a new year will miraculously bring about this new start we’re so eager about. Life is a continuous cycle and there is no such thing as a ‘reset’ button.
Instead the new year offers us something else; something better perhaps –
A second chance.
A second chance to learn from our mistakes. A second chance to pursue our passions, and to create new pieces of ourselves while rediscovering those pieces we’ve lost along the way.
Maybe 2015 will be a better year; maybe it won’t be. But that’s not important. What’s important is that we seize this second chance and work even harder to achieve those goals we could never seem to reach in 2014.
Fate is in our own hands, and if we want things to change for the better, we can’t just sit there and wait for the ‘magic’ of the new year to come around and change things for us. We ourselves must bring about that change we are so desperate for.
So, in 2015, let us continue striving. Let us continue writing our own sentences and constructing our own stories, even when the rest of the world insists on interrupting us with its monotonous commas and full stops.
Let no falter stop us.
Because here’s 2015. Here’s that second chance. Here’s us grabbing a hold of that second chance, and swinging our way into the futures that now await us in the distance.
