Why do we wait until the calendar says January 1 to make big changes in our lives?


Each new day marks another chance to be better. What do you think is triggered within ourselves on this particular day even though realistically speaking it is no different than any other day on the calendar?

    I agree! Those who want to change don't wait for the new year, or a Monday, or their next birthday. Those who truly see something they want to correct do it right when they decide upon it. Carpe diem!

    Whether it is your diet or your morality, you definitely have to WANT to change and it must be for genuine reasons. Anyone on a "strict diet" in life will falter if it isn't how they truly want to live.

    I suppose the main point of my question, in a way, answers yours. The ones that wait until New Year's Day (the majority anyway) probably don't have a deep desire to change. The good intentions are there but the dedication and determination are not.
