This New Years, many people will make long-term commitments to change who they are. Many people will set their resolutions and pursue their goals and dreams. Many people, for that small glimpse of time while the ball counts down minute by minute, will look back at the year of 2012 and remember the good times and the bad times. There is an indescribable feeling of hope, love, and a voice inside our head that will say, ‘we did it, we made it through the year stronger than ever’. For a moment in time, the world is united by one thought, a new year. How amazing it is to think that for one moment, something so simple as a new year can make the world forget what is happening within the world. We throw away our fear, our troubles, and war is not thought of. We open up to the idea of love and peace, and we smile at those who are around us. It is a bond between human beings that is impenetrable. We…for one small portion of time…are equal.
If there is one thing that I want you all to consider while writing out your resolutions, it’s that you are all beautiful already. You are beautiful in your faults and in your abilities. You mistakes are beautiful, and your character is beautiful. Be who you are this new year. 2013 is the year for change, and you will lead the way.
