It’s almost New Year’s Eve. Not the one where you get inebriated, watch a ball drop, and call it a night after singing Auld Lang Syne. It’s Rosh Hashanah, where even after food, family and guilt, the night is far from over as the guilt lingers.
Guilty feelings over things you would’ve, could’ve or should’ve done differently over the past year. Now, it is time to make amends with those that we have hurt, offended or plain right annoyed. Time to forgive and forget. But, is it really that simple? Should we just ask for forgiveness and forgive for forgiveness’ sake? (Are you following?)
What about the old adage that says: “Once something is broken, you can fix it, but it will never be the same again.” Isn’t it just easier to get a new one, whatever it is? I’m just saying…
Happy New Year.
