I couldn't agree more! Now, just a few days to celebrate the New Year, it is always a good time to keep people busy!
Either they are busy because they are getting ready to the party (buying new clothes, some last-minute presents, packing for some trip, etc.) or they are busy because they take this period for a reflection about all that have happened during the year and mainly for what they do want to accomplish in 2012.
Whatever is keeing them busy, Dalai Lama is right! It doesn't matter if it's a new year, a new day, a new friend...what really matters is what we do in all these opportunities to start again. Sometimes people get so worried about doing the right thing that they just miss the chance of enjoying the moment. It will be right if it's meaningful...meaningful for you! And although it seems simple, putting in this way, the real question is: what gives meaning to our life? A very successful carrer, a very happy family, getting around the world, helping others to find their meaningful life, a mix of all that...what? For sure, knowing the answer makes a great difference! Do you know the answer? Well, just another reflection at the end of the year!
