in with the new? or in with the acceptance of the old!

Its New years eve!
A new start!
A new year!

And yet,
I shall wake up
and feel the same
as I do today!
I shall still
be facing life
as a single mom,
to make ends meet..
about my financial future;
working hard
to change the course
of my life.

So what difference does
a day make?
it does not!
but what difference
does a life make?
an attitude?
an acceptance?
THAT changes
the course of what shall come!

As I look back
on the year,
the greatest thing
that has happened
is that I have met
and faced the past!
I have accepted
what was,
and my role
in the choices made!
I have reconciled
the changes
within me,
due to the hurt!
I have begun to let go!

I may not be a different
but I am a different person today!
As I accepted what was,
I made room for what
shall be!
I made room for ME!

and so this New Year
I face the future
having already faced the past!
Happy New Year to all...


  1. Happy New Year and you will definitely get on well with such a positive attitude.

  2. Of course today is just like yesterday, but I think the new year is meant to be a catalyst. I'm trying to use it as a time for thinking things through.

  3. Happy New Year to you too! May it be a huge one in growth for us both!
