So, someone tell me what it is about the change of the calendar that moves us so? I don’t begin to understand why this inspires so many of us to do the things that we do. We get moved to exercise or start doing some positive thing. What is it about January versus October or June?
I think that we all like to have new beginnings. I myself have done things like read more books or read more of the Bible at the start of the year. I have even started and ended jobs in this fateful month. I guess I am in on this too, but don’t tell anyone, I just mentioned to someone today how I am not one of those resolution people. We’ll just keep this one between us.
So what does that mean for all of us? For us it is as individual as we are. For some of us, we will embark on a new adventure be it career, marriage or something else. For others, it will be about losing weight, spending more time with their kids or some combination of all of that. I can only say that things will be very different for me. What that means, I am just not sure, but I look forward to it as I do any new year. Who knows, maybe I will be able to do more of what I have wanted to do for a long time and that is write.
Whatever you plan on for this year, I can only encourage you to stick with it. Take dreams seriously and make plans on achieving them. A dream is just that unless you make plans to do something about it.
Have a prosperous and fulfilling 2013. It doesn’t matter what happened in 2012 because it is behind us. And since the world has not ended yet, I plan on living life to the full.
