Today is the beginning of a new year. This day is no more magical than any other day, but it is a day, our traditions tell us, that begins a new chapter.
January 1 is a day in which I can, if I choose, look inward. If I look closely enough, I might see unexpected beauty. Let this be a day during which I seize that opportunity.
Already, I see the beauty around me. I am fortunate that there is so much goodness in the people I love. Today, my beautiful wife and I are beginning a new year together. That is as good as it gets.
