Our mind, or more precisely what we choose to focus our mind, shapes our perception, and often our reality.
On New Year’s Eve before the clock struck midnight, the conversations around the room had a nostalgic tone, oh boy, how fast has the time gone. Or a sense of urgency, gee really need to get on with that important project.
Merely a couple of minutes later, on the New Year’s Day, the mood shifted. It was more hopeful as if an amnesty has been granted – another 365 days of opportunities. Kinda reminded me thsoe school days that doesn’t how bad my grades were, a new school term always reset the slate clean for me.
What changed in a few minutes? Nothing visibly. But in our mind’s eye that 2016 is gone, it is history, and a brand new year awaits.
How different was your outlook or perspective acrossed the New Year? Any big revelation?
