The Ritual of New

Posted by JordanTheNinja , 26 December 2017 · 298 views

As with all things, an ending comes sooner or later. And we are quickly approaching the end of another year. My, time really flies. It seems that as each year comes, it goes by faster and faster, and pretty soon, I’ll be an old man, wondering where the hell my life has gone.

Maybe that’s the curse of adulthood. Once you reach a certain age, time speeds up. Maybe the key to being youthful forever lays within childhood. Maybe it has to do with being carefree, and seeing the world in a more innocent—yet raw—light. I’ve been writing again. I’m back in cycle, and I have to say I’ve never felt more carefree and excited than I have now.

Writing this novel has made me reevaluate my entire life. It’s made me step out of my own metaphorical box and really broaden my thinking. I’m taking the whole world in, and it’s a mind-blowing concept for me. I think that’s how you know you’re growing as a writer, and as a person, when you stop thinking about surface level ideas.

It’s the time of year where people want to change themselves, they initiate the cycle of New Year, New Me. And what more ritualistic concept is there? There’s nothing wrong with this thinking; I find that it’s a very awesome aspect, to want to change and want to grow. It makes me wonder what other rituals we as humans engage in. From now on, I’m going to refer to the beginning of a new year as “The Ritual of New.”

So, whatever plans you guys have for The Ritual of New, I hope they are fantastic and that they change your life for the better. I wish good health, prosperity, and love as we go into the New Year, and I want to see all of you thrive. May all the changes you want to make come to fruition. May whatever fears you hold be vanquished as you realize your inner power.


P.S. If you guys want to know more about this new novel, or just writing things in general, feel free to check out my Twitter and Instagram pages. I post excerpts of writings on both. Thanks!
