You might ask the question: Why is the New Year important? Is the economy an important factor? Is the political climate a important factor? Yes, these are significant in and of themselves, but the main reason why the New Year is important is because it represents a chance to start life, our personal lives, all over again, and the opportunity to point our lives in new and better directions. This is the reason why people make New Year resolutions. People make New Year resolutions because they hope to change their recognized bad habits or qualities for the better. People look forward to the New Year with newly renewed faith in God and in themselves, because they know that the old year is ending, and something new, good, fantastic and exciting might be in store for them.
I would like to take a few moments to offer my readers and online friends my sincere wishes for a healthy, happy, safe and prosperous New Year in 2011. People from different countries all over the world, including, of course, the great United States of America, view various articles on my website, and I appreciate the diversity of people, from all different walks of life, who visit my official website. Whether you are a conservative or a liberal, a Republican or a Democrat, an Independent or a Libertarian, I wish all of you great joy and success in 2011. May God bestow His blessings upon every person who reads these words.
In New Year 2011, let us all experience optimism, instead of pessimism, in 2011. Let us all learn to be more optimistic, rather than pessimistic, about the circumstances in our lives, no matter how depressing or upsetting they might be. Let us all learn to rise above the daily, mundane experiences we all have to deal with, and remember that mediocrity is not the most important thing going on in our lives. Above all, let us all bear in mind that life itself is precious and highly significant, and that we should always strive to develop the gifts God gave to us at birth. The potential for true greatness dwells within each and every one of us, and it is my hope that in the New Year of 2011, my readers, as well as myself, will attain to the greatness, in the spiritual sense, that we all deserve.
