Happy New Year in 2011

Happy New Year

New Year, New You?

New Year's Eve is a time of remembrance for all of us. A time to sit back and reflect on the past year of our lives. Remembering all the good and the bad. Remembering that what didn't kill us, only made us stronger. We sit on New Year's Eve and think upon the people we've met, the memories we made, the job changes, the relationship changes, the happy times, the sad times, the heartbreak and everything else. It's a reflection of ourselves and what we've become. And on New Year's Eve we have to think of weather we are going into the New Year a better more fulfilled person, or are there things that we need to work on? Maybe we need to work on ourselves inside? Or maybe it's the outside that has some fine tuning that needs done? Either way, New Year's Eve is a time of reflection of the past.

Then comes New Year's Day. New Years Day is a brand new year. And in this New Year we look forward to the things that are to come. Or to better put it, a time to change the things we want changed.   We all tend to make what is commonly known as "New Year's Resolutions".  Weather it be wanting to spend more time with family and friends, quitting a dirty habit, changing your job etc. We all want something new for ourselves and what better way to do it than to go forth on New Year's Day a new and fulfilled person. Someone set out to accomplish those goals that we made New Year's Eve?

But how many of us have also made those New Year's Resolutions only to fall back into the same patterns of the previous year? I know I'm guitly of it. But do you truly know what it is to make a "Resolution"?

A resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to themselves. A personal goal if you will. To change a certain aspect of yourself or lifestyle. Of course everyone thinks of resolutions differently. But my challenge to you is this : If there is a resolution that you have made for yourself in this New Year, stick to it. But start out small. Don't set a goal for yourself that is going to be so huge that you know you will not be able to accomplish it. Start small, but set your sights high. Because if you want to really make that change in your life, only you can do it.

I hope you all have a Happy New Year and may it be filled with every dream you ever dreamed!

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.  ~Hal Borland
