Every New Years I see so many people make remarks and comments about how New Year's resolutions are a waste, that it's just another day and people shouldn't need to wait for this time of year to make a commitment. Granted, some of those things are true, but a New Year represents so much and it stands as a symbol for so many people. It may just be another day but there is such immense power and emotion behind what a New Year denotes.
If, as humans, we didn't thrive off of symbolism and milestones then we wouldn't need to celebrate our birthdays every year or our anniversaries or even our graduations, You may not find solace in the freshness of a new year and you may not see it as a pillar for you to tie a goal to, but don't take that away from someone else with your negativity. Not everyone needs or wants a resolution every year, and if you're like me, you wait for the need for a resolution to call to you.
Some years I've had no resolution, and then in years like 2014, my resolution came to me within the first few days of the year and it had so much meaning to me. I can sit here today, on December 31st, and say I accomplished what I needed to and it has given me life again. I know 2015 will be the same, if and when I decide on what I choose to guide me as a goal in my year.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope God blesses you and that you accomplish something amazing in the year to come.
