New Day Rising

Digging this one up from last year – it’s still appropriate for 2012 and if you don’t mind, at the very least I could use a little reminding.


I heard a song on New Years Eve where part of the lyrics got me thinking about New Years, resolutions, new beginnings…the song was by the Foo Fighters and the song was “Times Like These” and the lyrics go:

I am a new day rising
I’m a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight

New Years Eve is almost always considered the new day rising, a time when the “reset” button gets pushed – and that is a beautiful thing. But the thing that’s even better, and the thing that often gets overlooked is that EVERY day is the new day rising, and EVERY tomorrow is the brand new sky. That means endless chances to change, to get back up and try again, to push on, endless chances to live and laugh and love, again.

This year, resolve to keep on resolving. Look forward, get back up one more time, ask for help if you need it, forgive yourself, empower yourself! Every day. No matter what.

Make this your year of new days, make every day your brand new sky and leave the past where it belongs because you never know what that brand new sky will bring you when you do.


Cheers to 2012, a new year full of new days ahead.
