Isn’t January 1 just another day? Neither do birds chirp louder, nor do flowers bloom brighter, nor does Mars get jealous of us for completing the lap faster. Nothing new really happens.
It is an illusion constructed by the society to drive us into conformity. To remind us about our pending loans, upcoming fees, outdating subscriptions etc.
Besides all this treachery, there is a perk to this construst as well. The illusion of a new beginning also gives us a chance to reevaluate our values, update our priorities, and check the course of our life. All this, only if you are willing to make the change.
Are you using this illusion to make your life better, or are you just being ruled by the calendar?
