Journal somaTh's Journal: New Year

So, I had an epiphany this evening about my own state of mind. New Year's Day has changed for me. It's no longer a new beginning. It's just another day. I can pretend something's changed, but I know it hasn't. I can choose to set special goals just because it's a particular day of the year, or I can treat it like a rational adult should and just do what I need to do in the first place. Nothing changes on new Year's day. Well, nothing other than the calendar. I'm not saying that New Year's resolutions are bad. Some people need an excuse to do better. I would love to pretend that a particular day of the year could do that for me, but I can't any more. I kind of miss that.
