New Year

Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different?

Another year, another chance to change. To change our habits, our thoughts, our perspective on life.

Not that we should wait until the first of the new year to do this of course, but it’s nice that we’re able to give our comrades(and ourselves) a write-off every few weeks of the new year to resolute big things (especially if they don’t keep them). Test the waters, if you will.

I think though, the idea of New Year Resolutions and the fact that we have this ritual at all shows that we realize we need change. Change is eminent. The fact that we dedicate the end of the year to spending time with family and friends and then reflecting on the year soon-to-be behind is an example of man’s innate desire to want to change, mostly for the better.

I know I’m going to change some things this year, in small steps. Setting realistic goals is much better than shooting for the stars (sorry Pitbull, but if you miss, you won’t land on the top of the world) and losing confidence in yourself.

Here’s to a new year, a write-off ; to a start fresh.
