New beginnings

January 4, 2008 at 9:09 am (Uncategorized)

And so the new year is here. Not yet a week old but definitely here.It’s 2008 and I haven’t made any resolutions. Don’t believe in the stuff actually.

I mean, what’s the point of saying you’re going to do something at the beginning of the year? What are the chances you’re actually going to do it?

If you want to do something (stop smoking, drink less coffee, lose weight, etc) why not do it, say, March? Why wait until the beginning of the year when you’re in a jolly mood and think the world is a beautiful place?

Or am I being cynical? Perhaps I should consider that the new year means new things. New beginnings, new hopes, new paths, new desires and new challenges.

That’s what I think I’ll plan to do this year: embrace everything that’s new and have a good old time experiencing it.

Who am I kidding? Still, happy new year!
