The common myth is that if you don’t kiss someone at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, you will be condemned to a year of loneliness. Yes, it’s a superstition, yet if you look around at five minutes before midnight on New Year’s Eve, I have no doubt that many singles will be looking desperately for someone to kiss.
I’m a big believer in the importance of the kiss (see my post, “It’s All In The Kiss”), yet what does this New Year’s kiss mean? Yes, if you’re with someone special, it’s a wonderful feeling to be able to kiss your beloved as an expression of your intention for the New Year.
However, what if you have no beloved on December 31st? What does it mean to you? Is the kissing glass half-full or half-empty?
Over twenty years ago, I remember being single and going out New Year’s Eve with my cousin (female, also single), because we were both probably feeling a little lonely and wanted company and wanted to get out. I recall quite distinctly, the smell of desperation, loneliness and emptiness in the club, as it got closer and closer to midnight. We made a game of deciding who in the room would be making the moves on whom. And we hugged and toasted at midnight and witnessed the anticlimax for so many.
It entertained us, yet is was sadly poignant at the same time. And if we didn’t have a beloved, at least we knew we had family and that we weren’t completely “alone”. And that is my point in writing this article.
Whatever your relationship status, you are NOT alone. As long as you stay connected to yourself and those who are important to you, you are NOT alone. And you may use the New Year as a launching point to create an intention (and follow up on it) to create the relationship of your dreams for the New Year!
I wish you the best,
