New Year’s Day has got to be one of my favorite days of the whole year. Sure, it’s the first day of the new year. But, I like the feeling I have on this day. I always seemed to be filled with hope about the possibilities this year can bring. I don’t know what those possibilities are, but it’s just exciting to think about it.
In the past, I was always worried about what the future would bring. I don’t know why I was so anxious about it, but I am pretty sure it had something to do with my fear of the unknown. However, I realize I have no control over what will happen in the future. I can only control what is happening in the present. I am going to try very hard to enjoy each moment as it comes this year.
To sum up how I feel, here is a photo that my oldest daughter, Cassie, took of Malia and my nephew. My daughter, Malia, decided to take a break on the grass and my nephew decided to join her. They both look so happy and relaxed. They were enjoying the late sunshine and had no cares at all. I wish I could bottle up that feeling. No worries. Enjoy life! I love how this picture shows this. I love how Cassie captured a special moment between cousins.
