Goodbye 2013 hello 2014. I don't know exactly what will definitely happen and what is in store for all of us this new year. But, for humans January marks a new beginning. I would like to get into details the symbolism and meaning of this month. Leland B. Jacobs quote: "January opens the box of the year and brings out days that are bright and clear".
Obviously, January is a time where everybody expects something good. and everyone wishes each other all the good things in life. According to Roman mythology January was named after Janus, he's the gods of doors, doorways, arches, openings and closings. Janus if you can still remember is the two faced god. He has the ability to turn one face to reflect the past and another face to point the future.
January usually people starts reflecting the past and contemplates the future. Janus is kind of a doorman within our soul. This beginning of the year which is January is the perfect time to think of all the potentials within us and believe that behind of it all is an endless doorways of possibilities.
