I would like to welcome you to 2014!
The beginning of a new year has been likened to opening a blank page in a book, turning over a new leaf, or wiping the slate clean and starting over. Many people make New Year’s resolutions, hoping to improve themselves in the coming year. Polls are taken on whether people like you think the coming year will be better or worse than last year.
But perhaps the analogy I like the best is comparing a new year to a newborn baby. You might guess I would like that one: as an OB-Gyn doctor, I frequently get to be the one who helps a new baby enter the world. It’s a precious moment to hold that newborn baby and present him or her to the wide-eyed parents. There’s nothing that grabs your heart quite like a baby.
From time to time I wonder what kind of life that newborn baby will grow up to have.
