Today is Chinese New Year Day. It’s a day when every action we take should be auspicious—in the belief that this sets the tone for the remainder of the year. That’s certainly an ideal worth pursuing. How many times do we really get the chance to start over, start fresh, start anew? This is one of those days, and it’s worth the contemplation and the determination to make the entire year good.
The year of the dragon should certainly be an active one. Some say it’s especially lucky. When we have good fortune, we have to work hard to make use of it, and to stay balanced. When we have bad fortune, we have to work hard to overcome our difficulties. Therefore, only the actions and hard work of each individual are stronger than fate.
