January 1st never seemed like a new year to me. My new year always seems to be closer to September 1st. Maybe it’s a school thing or the fact that summer is over again, but autumn is my fresh start. Still, I like to gather with friends and family and hand out a questionnaire to be opened the following year.
Here’s some you may want to ask yourself and/or others:
- What have you learned about yourself this past year?
- What kind of changes can you make that will make you a happier person to be around?
- What will your reading list include this year?
- What do you predict will be the hottest news item of 2015?
Reflection doesn’t hurt even if you don’t feel that December 31st is a legitimate evening of celebration. Don’t be a Debbie Downer – find that little spark of hope within and smile tonight.
