"Fresh starts, thanks to the calendar, they happen every year - just set your watch to January, our reward for surviving the holiday season is a new year. Bringing on the great tradition of New Years resolutions, put your past behind you and start over. It's hard to resist that chance of a new beginning, a chance to put the problems of last year to bed."
"Who gets to
determine when the old ends and the new begins? It's not on the
calendar, it's not a birthday, it's not a new year, it's an event - big
or small, something that changes us, ideally it gives us hope, a new
way of living and looking at the world, letting go of old habits, old
memories. What's important is that we never stop believing that we can
have a new beginning, but it's also important to remember amid all the
crap there are a few things really worth holding on to."
