A New Year, A New You




I was in line at the grocery store when I noticed all the various magazine covers.  Each one mentioned something about starting the new year off on the right foot.  "A new year, a new you," was quoted on most.  How can the transition from one number to the next bring a new me?  Why shouldn't we work hard to improve our lives any other day of the year?


We are obsessed with starting over.  I am at fault for it, honestly.  When I was a kid, I would freak out the moment I made a mistake while playing a song on the piano.  I would spazz a little and then start the song all over again, there was no moving on from that mistake.  I had to play it right, all the way through.  Until today, I will erase words if my penmanship doesn't look right.  Now with a whole year, it's a little different.  If we stumble, we wait until the next year to get some resolutions to follow.  We can't just start the year over the moment we make a mistake.


As for my new years resolution a la 2010... to eat better and get fit.




Or maybe transfer my anal retentive nature into planning workout sessions that actually happen.




Salut!
