Every New Year we get the opportunity to look back on the success of the previous year and establish what we hope to accomplish in the new one. This year, we get 366 opportunities to live the best possible version of ourselves. We also get 366 chances to make peace with the past and find ways of further healing our pain.
As we discussed earlier in the month, January is thought to be named for the Roman God Janus. This two-faced deity oversees the gate between one’s past and future. He governs the movement from who you were, to becoming who you want to be.
