Here we go again; another New Year has come, wishes are flying from right to left like a kite and everywhere you go someone’s got a New Year resolution. That’s all well and good but come to think of it is there anything actually new about a new year?

I mean it’s the same 24 hour day, same weather as the day before (Dec. 31st), so why do people treat the New Year as if it’s any different from the year before? What makes the first day of a New Year special? After all the whole idea of a new year is all in the mind, we’re the ones turning pages of a calendar in our mind. It’s true that season changes but the concept of a day

It’s true that season changes but the concept of a day remain ever constant; day followed by night. Which makes me wonder why we have to build up the idea that a certain day signifies a new beginning; a new dawn.

It has become a tradition to expect and believe that a new year is a way to start afresh maybe change some habits and attitudes but the truth is that there’s no resolution you make on the first day of a year that can’t be done on, let’s say April 24th, June 8th or December 1st.

This is the reason many fail to stick to their New Year resolution because they’ve bought into the idea that a new year comes with a new direction, a new wave, a new dispensation, a new life.

It’s almost as if they’re trusting in the mystical powers of a new year to make the changes in their life for them which is sadly untrue.

Albert Einstein wasn’t brilliant as a kid but he made up his mind one day and he changed his story, he didn’t wait till a new year to decide to effect change in his life, he did it when it became necessary and there lies the problem with many people, they keep doing the same thing for 365 days and then think one day is magically going to make them change because that day is the beginning of a new year but life doesn’t work like that, if you don’t make the necessary change no matter when you make a resolution it’s going to fail.

A new year is not a magical day, it’s not a day that all wishes come through, it’s a day like any other which requires your determination,

A new year is not a magical day, it’s not a day that all wishes come through, it’s a day like any other which requires your determination, dedication, and positive attitude before you can get something good out of it so stop with all this new year hype and know that every day can be a new year if only you change your attitude and thinking.
