2016: New Year, same me (Just with bigger things to come)
So the New Year’s period has just past, and as usual everywhere I turn on the internet it is filled with the usual array of comments and posts from people with statements like “New Year, new me”, and the usual list of New Years resolutions that people make their first steps in trying to complete in the weeks following January 1st.
Now don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great when people go out of their way to try and improve themselves, and it actually gets me more annoyed seeing those people who condemn others over their aim to make changes to their lives for the better, I just don’t get the crazy addiction and significance for people to wait until the new year in order to get these things to happen. I personally believe, if you want to make a serious positive impact in your own life or just generally, there is no time like the present, whenever that is. The Universe doesn’t suddenly decide that because it’s January 1st today, it’s going to change itself in order to make it more likely for people to make significant changes, because the Universe doesn’t add significance to the same specific date each year.
Since the date of January 1st, I have made the decisions to enter 2 business competitions in order to further boost my chances of succeeding with my idea. However I made those decisions, not because of the day it was, but because I decided a while back what I wanted to achieve in the end with my idea and my future.
That is why for this year of 2016, I am not going out of my way to tell everyone i’m a new person because the last number on the date has changed, but rather it’s the same me, still trying to improve myself in the ways that I think will benefit me and the world around me the most, just with hopefully bigger and better challenges and things yet to come.
