Every day can be a fresh startMany of us crave to bring changes to our lives. It may be certain changes such as spending some time in making oneself physically fit or eating clean. It may be controlling anger and living peacefully. Some of us want to change our old habits. It can be quitting to drink alcohol, smoking, lying or indisciplined lifestyle. Whatever may be the change but we wait until the new year to implement it. Until then we continue with what we are doing and feel that when the clock will strike twelve in the midnight, we will bid goodbye to our old habit or old self and will transform into an improved version. Why do we wait until the new year? Probably because we all want to start fresh. We feel what can be better than the start of a new calendar year.
What is the loss of waiting? People who want to give up on their unhealthy habits can give up anytime. Those who do not want to give up find excuses such as new year resolutions. Their inner drive isn't that strong enough. It is not going to happen that all of a sudden they will wake up on 1st January and give up the old habit. Even if they make resolutions on the new year, they give up a day or two later.
Then why wait for so long. Every day the sun rises and every day is a chance to bring the desired changes. Sun doesn't wait for a new year to arrive, then why should we postpone the things to the future which is so uncertain. Whatever we wish to achieve and change in our life, we have to do that now. We can start over anytime and any day of the year and slowly reach our set goals.
