New Day - A New Year?

On the last day of the year, most people are thinking of their New Year's resolutions and the year ahead. But, how many choose to reflect on this year without an unrealistic expectation of what's in store next year. Naturally, a new year brings about the opportunity for change, however, shouldn't it be something you try to do everyday not just at the change of the year? There are people who say that in the new year, they will start to work out, be organized, go do something good for the community, which is perfectly fine, but we should be reminded to do these things everyday not next year or tomorrow, but today. That's why I choose to say "Happy New Day" - may every day be as good as the one before and next...

What a great post, I don't make resolutions. I have hopes for the coming year but these are things I'd like to see happen but I don't put the pressure of resolutions onto myself.

Happy New Day(s)!

I couldn't agree more. I have New Year Hopes I keep in my head. Continued efforts from the year before and some change for the year to come.... really just my continued daily efforts. For me, January 1st doesn't mark a whole new beginning.....but rather maybe a day to reflect and move forward....

How nice :^)

I never make resolutions, but I guess it's just easier psychologically to stick to some resolutions when you tie them up to a certain event - the change of the year, for instance.

Happy New Year everyone!
