New Year, New You?

So, new year, new you? I never understood that concept. For some reason, January 1st doesn’t seem like a momentous day to make changes. It’s not really any different than December 31st. We have to remember to write a new date on our checks (if you actually still write checks – I do) and we pay taxes yet again. But why do we always save our resolutions and changes for this particular date? What magically changes at midnight?

To be clear, I don’t disagree with the idea of bettering oneself. But why must it only be once a year? Why not make resolutions all year long? With that in mind, it’s time to get back to my writing schedule. Between a hectic move, a nasty virus that made the rounds at our house (twice), and Christmas, I’m a little behind. But with the kids back in school and the decorations down, it’s time to get back to work. So, perhaps there is something to the first of the year. A time of renewal and reorganization. Or maybe most of us are just so happy the kids and hubs are out of the house that we feel like singing.

What are your goals this year?
