What is it about the prospect of an entirely new year that fills us to the brim with hope? With goals of pushing ourselves into becoming something we can be proud of? With promises of doing better and doing more? With notions of putting the past behind us and starting completely anew? With an inexplicable drive to take the necessary steps towards attaining what we want for ourselves?
I’ve talked about the idea of “new beginnings” on New Year in a blog post I wrote in, what feels like, a decade ago. Despite this, to date, New Year remains to be my favorite holiday and/or time of the year.
