The new year ushers in the proverbial blank page where one can look towards an endless horizon of possibilities. For most, the resolutions start rolling in accompanied with the hopes of breaking bad habits and embracing healthier and enriching lifestyles. The beauty of new beginnings has the power to fill our hearts with so much inspiration and joie de vivre, it’s almost magical!
Our own sisters at Soroptimist International Anaparima have been blessed with new beginnings in various forms. We have new mothers feeling the euphoria of unconditional love for their precious newborns, newlyweds on the path to creating lives together with their significant others, new career opportunities that present the chance to live out self-fulfilling dreams and aspirations and new academic achievements that restore our belief in just how much we are capable of both as Soroptimists and women seeking change.
As we walk side by side in 2023, we hope to foster fresh bonds with our newly inducted sisters and reinforce the old friendships we have formed over the years. An exciting year lies ahead and we are filled the new energy and capacity to be the facilitators of change in the lives of the young women and girls in our communities. Let us be encouraged to chase after the dreams we have been holding within our hearts and allow these dreams the chance to breathe and grow.
May 2023 be a year of beautiful new beginnings and abundance for you!
