Who Are You Becoming This Year?

Regardless of how resolute we truly are, I believe New Year’s Day is an important rite of passage. Every year I find that it forces me to reflect on how I want to be different in the upcoming year. I have to wrestle with the delta – the change I want to make through my actions, disciplines and choices. I get to stare for a brief moment at the photo that’s developing and see who I’m becoming.

Rites of passage offer us the opportunity to reflect on who we are, and who we are becoming (sometimes again). There is nothing special about New Year’s Day, except that it affords us a new beginning. A fresh start. A new frame.
