Naw, not really. No new me, just the same old straight forward, and to the point me I have always been.
However, the “New Year” does bring a sense of being able to “Start over”. It brings a fresh outlook on the upcoming year. A way for people to reset themselves. So I guess it’s sort of like a “New Me”, is possible.
I do look forward to this and every year, in anticipation as to what it will hold for me and others. Just think back to last year at this time, so many things that happened were unforeseen. Both good and bad.
Are you still in the same job, house, marriage etc..? Did we loose a loved one, or gain one in the past year? Win the lottery or loose a fortune? So many unforeseen things, both big and small happened to us all.
So even though I am not going to loose that weight I gained (although Id love to), I’m not going to stop cursing or start fostering stray dogs in the community (my wife would kill me), I do look forward to how the new year will change or my life and those around me.
Sit back and enjoy the ride, that’s what I’m going to do. But I’ll probably do it with a glass of bourbon in my hand. You?
