Every year as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, the eyes of this glorious world turn to my City..heh….the brilliant lights, the dynamism…the “happening” that is: Times Square.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6………..
It’s as if the world is holding its breath…until that clock finally strikes twelve.
Waiting for the “Ball” to descend from atop One Times Square.
Waiting to usher in the hope and promise of the New Year. Woohoo!
Last year I was one of the one million (crazy) people in Times Square, along with literally -millions nationwide and over a billion watching throughout the entire world.
Whether you’re part of a star-studded musical performance down South, tossing balloons up North, shaking pom-poms in the U.K., confetti in Spain, or possibly watching a colorful pyrotechnic display in Australia….
For just one moment, let us feel as though we are truly united.
What a feeling…..
We bid a collective farewell to the past year, and we best pray hard sweet friends, for hope for the coming year.
(And we all know why)
Good riddance to bad karma and bad vibes. Ack!
The time is drawing near………
Sooooooooo….Pucker up guyz n dollz!
HAPPY NEW YEAR SWEET FRIENDS FAR AND NEAR!
Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.
New Year’s Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive.
Most of all:
Keep speaking out. Never give up.
Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. When it comes to understanding the power we have to make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep. If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up. Wake up to your own strength. Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say.
