It’s Matariki: traditionally this was seen as the Maori New Year. Now the seven stars of Matariki is celebrated as a time for new beginnings.
What if you were able to mark a date where you could let go all of the pain and difficulty of the year before and celebrate your own new beginning. We often use January 1 as a commitment to new or revisited resolutions. Have you ever started off the year full of promises and at times, unrealistic expectations to yourself, only to find by February you’ve let yourself down? Each seemingly impossible resolution further beyond your grasp than it even felt on December 31st?
