Optimism and Hope

A few days back, we welcomed a new year. 2022 has started, and we are already halfway into the first month. A new year brings with it new resolutions, hopes, and aspirations. Most of us set targets that we hope to achieve during the year. Most of us also end up forgetting all about these goals even before the year is halfway through !!
What is it about the New Year that makes us so optimistic?
The pandemic has impacted lives across the globe and is now into its second year. It is also showing no signs of easing off. And yet we still wish a ‘great new year’ to all our near and dear?
Where does all this optimism come from? Is it that we humans have over the centuries developed an innate quality to look at only the better side of life, mask the pain and sorrow and hope that we will eventually survive and overcome.

  1. I haven’t been sensing as much optimism this year as usual, but it’s tradition to be hopeful at the start of the new year. It’s a new beginning. Mine started out not too great, but that means it will get better. Right? Have a blessed 2022!
