The beginning of a new year can inspire a great deal of emotions. Many people become contemplative and hopeful, but it can also make people feel a bit curious, or even anxious, about seeing what the future holds.

For these faithful people, every season can be entered into with hopefulness, trusting that every beginning, and every end for that matter, is just another chance to experience life’s many peaks and valleys, which combined are what make the experience so exciting, and also so connecting.
