I absolutely LOVE New Year's. I love the champagne, the parties, the happiness, the glitter, it's everything I've ever wanted in a day. I celebrate the fact that it's a time to dress up, throw caution to the wind, and be amongst those closest to you. It's a way to say we made it through the Holidays. We wore that ugly sweater from Grandma, we sat at the table with our families and didn't kill anyone, and we spent all of our hard earned money buying gifts people already lost. And we deserve to dance on tables while drinking bubbles. That's what NYE means to me. But to millions of other people, it's a time of reflection, a time to set goals, and a time to dream of future possibilities. And while I am all for reflection, goals, and possibilities, I have to laugh at the whole concept of a New Year's Resolution. WHY do people need a day to tell them to make a change, set goals, and to build a better future? If those things are so important to you, so life changing, why aren't you doing them year round? It seems to me that if you're really about resolutions, goals, and dreams, that you're going to make a concious effort to do those things regardless of the date on the calendar. The people that get life, that truly WIN at living, are the folks that are looking at who they are daily and are making adjustments DAILY. They want to make the most of the little time we've got and they honestly want to strive to be alittle better and get a little more out of each day. My challenge to you, don't worry about the date on the calendar, worry about how you feel right now and what you can do right NOW to enjoy your life more.
Cheers to NOW!
