New Years Happens But Twice a Year
In 2008, I inadvertently wrote two blog posts entitled, “So this is the new year…” The first was written about the Jewish New Year – Rosh Hashana. The second reflected on the secular new year, just a few months later.
When I did a search today for my past New Years posts and found two identically titled, I was embarrassed at the oversight. But after reading them again 4 years later and seeing how very different they were from one another, it all makes sense. The post – each post – was written as a meditation on my experience on New Year’s Eve – both of them.
In the 4 years since I wrote these posts, I have changed significantly – thank God – but it’s comforting to know that my core beliefs in renewal, forgiveness, friendship, acceptance of flaws, and desires to always be better stay the same.
Happy New Year.
