>Breaking Down the Greeting

1 Jan

>Happy ~ New ~ Year!  As we welcome 2011 into our lives, let’s take a minute to break down the greeting.  Blog readers:  I wish you a very HAPPY/ NEW/ YEAR.  We have heard those three words, we have proclaimed the saying to others, we’ve seen it in print in many different places.  Now we are left to live it.  Live the meaning for an entire year.  Break it down into more than a greeting.  Break down the greeting into an obtainable goal- a lesson to live for, three words to live by in 2011.

HAPPY– Take to heart the words “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”.  That is also the title and principal lyric of a song by musician Bobby McFerrin. Released in September 1988.  We are going to have problems this year.  Reality will dictate that fact.  In our personal and business life, we will have times of challenge.  We might as well work on lowering our blood pressures this year and practice being happier at the same time.  Tell yourself to be happy, or better yet… make someone else happy.

NEW- If you are alive and well this very second and you are reading this…you have been given the gift of new.  It is up to us what we do with this day and the newness it brings.  An Oprah Winfrey quote can sum up what I mean when I ask to celebrate the word new: “Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”

YEAR– O.k. friends, many things can happen in a years time. Right now we think that we have plenty of time to hit those resolutions, obtain those goals and strive to be a better person with a better life.  It will flash before us like the rest of the years have done.  If we get distracted along the way- and we will…keep these three words in the forefront of your mind to help you keep on track to remaining happy and new during this year.  All and all  G.K Chesterton sums this up nicely in saying that “The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul.”
