Janus was the god of all beginnings and of passages such as doors, gates and bridges. Janus was often depicted with two faces, one facing backwards and one facing forward. One looking back to the past, and another looking forward to the future. Janus represents every new year. New years which are moments to carry on our life to new beginnings, to new doors, gates, and bridges.
I guess, this is not just an invitation to all of us as new years come, but all the more a challenge. Another year has just ended and another year has just came, but the challenge is clear. Let us not be mediocres, content by just being passive to what has transpired and blind to what the future brings.
Mapagpalang Bagong Taon.
