“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.”–Joseph Campbell
In the the practical analysis, there’s really no difference between 11:59pm on December 31 and 12:01am on January 1. They are simply two moments along the continuum that is our life and times.
However, we make a big deal out of that tick of the clock because ritual is valuable and new beginnings are seductively empowering.
In just 3 weeks, another year will have ended and a new one begun.
What do you want to fulfill on in this new chance/new year that approaches?

“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.” –G.K. Chesterton
