I’m not sure what all the fuss is about on social media regarding those wanting to recreate themselves for the new year. Being a spiritual person or believer as some would say, I am all about rebirth.
Sure, most resolutions fall through within the first week of the new year but at least those people are willing to make changes. It takes a courageous person to examine themselves and be brutally honest when looking in the mirror of their own soul. It’s not considered a failure until you quit trying. The day you give up on being a better you is the day you fail. The day you become a quitter is the day you are a loser.
Birthdays and new years are special to me. I don’t want to reach either of the two in the same manner I did the year before. Once you identify things you need to improve in your life, changes should be made immediately. However, some people don’t realize those things until they are reviewing the past year of their life on December 31st. I am not superstitious, but I would rather enter into a brand new year with a clean home and washed laundry. When I changed over my load the morning of New Year’s Eve, it dawned on me that I still haven’t overcome this procrastination thing (part of my resolution for 2013)! I did get better at it, though.
This past year has had many ups and downs, twists and turns. All the way to the 31st, I was receiving shocking news that was meant to knock me off of my feet. But I’m grounded in my faith. This year, I challenge you to go against the grain despite what the majority is doing. Defy the odds!
