The ball drops and fireworks. Resolutions are made.
People scream and people kiss and is it possible to change?
Welcome to Midnight.
Another year comes to a close. Another year begins.
With just a moment in between.
Why the fuss?
Why the fame and fireworks?
Is it more than hype? More than something else to sell us?
Is there something to this holiday? Something true inside of it?
Because isn’t there something inside us that aches for change…
Dreams it to be possible…
To let go.
To hold on.
To leave it all behind.
To start over.
To be new.
Is it possible?
If you’re reading this, if there’s air in your lungs, then you’re alive today, tonight, right now.
And who can know how long we have here……..
And is it a gift? Was it ever a gift? Did that ever feel true or could that one day feel true?
Are there things to fight to live for?
Moments and people. Weddings and children and all your different dreams.
Is your life more than just your own?
And are there broken things you were made to fight to fix?
Broken families? Broken friends? Broken relationships?
Will you move for things that matter?
Wouldn’t it be nice if change took just a single moment?
Wouldn’t it be nice if it were that easy?
Midnight and we’re new. Midnight and the past was erased. Midnight and we’re free.
It seems to come slow. It seems to be a surgery.
Forgiveness. Healing. Letting go. Starting over.
It seems to happen slowly over time.
One day at a time, the choice made new each morning.
Will you fight for love?
Will you fight to be healthy?
Will you fight to be free?
Will you fight for your story?
Will you fight to start over?
Will you fight to forgive?
Change takes more than a moment in time, but maybe there’s also something to this celebration of a moment, something to the way it speaks to us, something to the way we fear it and dream it to be true. Maybe it’s the most honest moment of the year.
It’s possible to change.
It’s possible to forgive.
It’s possible to start new.
Here’s to the possibilities.
WELCOME TO MIDNIGHT.
