Speak Your Mind: Obligatory New Years Post
Happy New Year 2014, everyone! It’s a time to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re going. If you’re like me, your life doesn’t feel any different today than it did yesterday, but it’s hard to deny the symbolic significance of the day.
Or maybe it’s not. A lot of meaning has been packed into one day. So much so that it’s almost impossible for it to live up to the hype. January 1 is a nice, neat day to celebrate the new year, but, when you think about it, it’s kind of arbitrary. Why not March 27 or June 13? You can make new goals for yourself any time of the year. What makes January 1 so special?
Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Is the new year a time when you try to make improve yourself in some way? Or do you think it’s just an arbitrary day infused with artificial meaning? Even if you don’t see any special meaning in the day, did you at least have a fun New Year’s Eve?
