The power of hope
Updated: Jan 11, 2021
So many reasons to celebrate the turning of the calendar page!
It’s hard to watch fireworks & not feel hopeful & excited, even if it’s just until the show ends. Check out uplifting New Year’s celebrations & fireworks around the globe – there may have been few people watching in person, but it’s hard to beat the spectacular shows in Sydney, Dubai & Rio de Janeiro. Unlike a tree falling in the forest, NBC News shows us that fireworks shows with no people still really happened!
Though the new year isn’t looking all that different from 2020 just yet, the simple changing of the calendar gave a lot of us a feeling of exhalation. CNN reminds us there’s a long list of exciting events to look forward to in 2021 – from the Olympics (finally!) to new books, new music & hopefully the return of Broadway (fingers crossed…). We can all look forward to seizing new experiences, especially after the past year. To quote country star Brad Paisley, “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”
