81 - Auld Lang Syne and New Year’s Observations

81 - Auld Lang Syne and New Year’s Observations

The song “Auld Lang Syne” is based on a poem published by Robert Burns and the Scottish song title, loosely translated into English, means “old long since” or “long long ago”.

In episode 81, Genny shared the reasons why this song is so synonymous with the New Year and why we sing it on New Year’s Eve. She also shared some history of the song and what some of the lyrics mean.

Genny also shared some observations on why it’s important to look back at the previous year and why it’s also important to look ahead, not with any regrets but with an eye to opportunities and possibilities.
