Today is Tết or Lunar New Year in Viet Nam. Having been born & raised here in the US, I’ve only experienced Tết in Viet Nam once as an adult. There was nothing like it. It was a memorable experience to enjoy it with my young cousins. Truth be told, I was a little envious of the wild excitement in their eyes and very grateful that despite whatever needs they were in want of, they had the joy and hope that the birth of a new year brings.
Any day can be the start of a new year…a day to make a promise, to turn over a new leaf, to dream big, to live the best life you can.
