Wrong. Same me.
I’m having a tough time wrapping my head around the whole new year thing. This is probably due to the fact that up until two days ago (12/30/14) I was completely unaware that a new year was so so EXTREMELY close. For some reason I thought I had more time in 2014. So I apologize for my lack of sentimentality (?) but I cannot stand to be even a little bit sappy today, no matter how hard I try.
Allow me to return to the topic of “new year, new me” for a little. A lot of people view a new year as a new beginning, though in my opinion everyday could be perceived as a new beginning. Now I don’t mean to shun those of you who have a shopping-list of new year’s resolutions, resolutions are never bad. I guess what I’m trying to say is, if there is something you want to change about yourself/life or an opportunity you want to take or even a new activity you want to try, start today. When I say “today” I don’t mean the new year. “Today” represents any day and everyday. Resolutions should be made every single day, not just once every new year.
Aside from the resolutions, a new year is a great way/excuse to reflect on the old year. Reflecting has always been difficult for me because I am way too consumed in the present and even the future. Though what I must constantly remind myself of is how important reflection is to one’s success. So here I am forcing as many corny reflections as I possibly can out of the year 2014.
