A New New Year Read Count : 5

Sub Category : N/A

It's the first day of the first week of the first month in the new year, and well - I suppose that does mean a fresh start with new opportunities. So what does this mean exactly, I mean...so the earth has revolved 365 times - what's the big deal? Is there really anything new about all of this, and I guess the more important question here is: does this new year also come with a new me?

Maybe I am not riding this new year business on the far-famed wave of enthusiasm like everyone else seems to be doing, or maybe I'm just seeing things for what they really are without the lenses of optimism. Either way, this new year biz is getting kind of old for me. So far, nothing has really changed for me, we've been doing the same thing over and over since the birth of the festive season: partying and shooting fireworks, making annual resolutions, and if things don't go our way then we just try to endure whatever it is that the - once promising year -throws at us, and so the whole thing repeats itself. 

I'm not a pessimist, but I do consider myself to be realistic. And every time I take a look at reality it always seems...well, honestly not as good most people portray it to be. I know this may seem quite dreary of me but that's just the way it is. Don’t get me wrong, I also have hopes for the future, a hope for change - the drastic kind. But like how wise people say: "The change starts with you." 

So maybe this new year might just come with a new me, a better me. I'll have to change the way I do things so that it's not unrealistic of me to expect different results. I honestly don't know if this time it will be a 'Happy New Year' and if so, how long it will last: I'm so not the type to hold my breath; but I'll try because I'm human, I'll have to for the sake of my dreams coming true.
