Happy New Year!

Happy new year!
Constance van Niekerk


A brand new year and a brand new beginning. A chance to start afresh and possibly make amends. Oh how I love the first of January! Its time for those new year resolutions with some appearing on last year’s list and the year before and the year before. Every year starts with promises to change, programmes to follow, new habits to start and all those positive vibes. Then after a few weeks or a few months the promises are broken, the programmes forgotten and this new year gradually starts to follow the footprints of the year before and the year before and it goes on.
This year is going to be different. This year you will get up after each fall. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, but the important thing is what do you do after you fall. This year will most definitely be different. When you feel the burden is too much you are going to carry on. Say goodbye to procrastination and make this year different.
We are lucky to have another chance, another year and another try. Who knows, this time it might just be the last one. Take each day as a gift and treat each day as the first of January. Everyday is a chance for a fresh start, a second chance and a brand new beginning.


Happy new year! May each day be the first of January for you. A new beginning, new hope and a new start.
