FIRST, A TOAST:
Tonight we only entertain the extraordinary, the genuine, and the remarkable; because tonight will never happen again.
Can’t be in Times Square for the ball drop?
In Times Square the ball is suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, to stop and reflect on the year that has gone by.
To remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt because that is what New Years is all about- getting another chance.
A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about what if and start embracing what would be.
So when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let’s remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just tonight but all year long.
Happy New Year!
