Not New.... Just Old

The little girl smiled, though part of her wanted to break down crying. She wasn't ready for this. For the new things. For all the change. She felt angry that it was ending and that she couldn't do anything about it. It made her upset; right when everything was falling into place, she had to start all over again. Yet, she smiled. Smiled because she could at least start over now. Forgive those who had wronged her and forgot the mistakes she had made.....
........ But forgiving and forgetting takes time. And time is so gets so hurtful. And she was comfortable here. The time here had become her friend. Life was being kind to her. In the beginning it was just as tough as the coming moments were going to be. But now, she had settled in. Everybody knew her, got used to her and liked her too. And now her glory was coming to an abrupt end.
While she thought of all this, that sad part of her got bigger and bigger, till it got hold of completely. And she cried.
And then suddenly through the screen of wet tears, she saw the future. She became positive again. She knew she was still young and once she realized the confidence in herself come alive, she heard the truth,
"Honey, you don't have to start over again. It won't be a new beginning. It would just be the time now getting older. That way, all you have to do is make things better. Not forget the good times but replace the bad ones with new experiences."
And the little girl smiled again. But this time with conviction. She gave a soft laugh and stepped out to become the old year she was now. Still there was a change, but a happy one. She gladly embraced herself to be 2011

Happy 2011 everyone! Have a great year ahead! :)
