Looking Forward To A New Year! Happy 2014!

  
  
The month of January is named in honor of the   god  Janus by the ancient Romans. Janus, had two faces, one looking to the past and one looking to the future. He is the god of new beginnings and endings. He is also the god of transitions.  
  
Wikipedia mentions :
Janus frequently symbolized change and transitions such as the progress of future to past, from one condition to another, from one vision to another, and young people's growth to adulthood. He represented time, because he could see into the past with one face and into the future with the other.[39]  
  
The beauty of looking into the past is that you can sum up all the places you have been. Lessons learned. Love shared. Time wasted or well spent. All of it is a personal map of who you are today. As time transitions us into the nostalgia of new beginnings we fill with   hopeful excitement of things to come.   The new year seems to carry so much promise. My personal excitement for setting a new course for my life is revived every year along with my impatience for not living according to the path I set yesterday. The yesterdays and tomorrows sometimes keep me from today. Now. This very moment. Who am I? Where am I? Where are you?
  
The dilemma   of Janus is that he points to the past and   opens the future but forgets about now. This moment. In this moment. I wish you a Happy New Year. I wish you joy and immense blessings in this moment.
  
May you have a beautiful New Year and enjoy the perfect moment you are in.
  
Love,
