There’s a great quote I read today and posted on Twitter…
Today never occurred before, it will never be repeated. At midnight it will end, quietly, totally, forever. The hours between are full of possibilities.
It’s a new year, a chance to start over, to create new, to evaluate what has and what could happen.
I am not a fan of New Years resolutions. I am not a fan of the idea of January 1st being some whimsical day that has such significance that it can change our lives. It can’t. The day is irrelevant. It’s just a day. There are 12 firsts every year. There are 52 monday’s and of course we have 365 midnights. Each of these could be starting point… couldn’t it?
Here’s my theory, it’s just mine, it doesn’t mean it’s right.
Every minute of every day is a chance to start over. To create new habits, ideas, choices, friends. You can make January 5th a “New Year”… if you want. Please don’t get discouraged if you already have slipped on your 2010 resolutions, it really doesn’t matter. You can start again tomorrow. It’s brilliant, isn’t it? You have control of you, not Dick Clark, not some stat holiday, not some app on your iPhone… YOU! Chew on it, it’s a new way of looking at making resolutions of making change.
Happy New Year!
