New Year

All I see on TV right now is ways to improve my health, my home, my relationships. Why is the new year always about a new you? I mean everyday is the first day of the rest of your life - why do people only feel they can start over at the beginning of the year?

When we moved to NM It was a new chapter. I lost a few pounds, organized parts of my house, extended teh olive branch to some people. Yea I could stand to lose a few more pounds, organize my house better, and work on repairing a few more relationships.

I guess my question is why is this only done at the beginning of the year? Instead of waking up on January 1 saying "it is a brand new year, what can I do to improve my life in this year?" Why can't we wake up every morning and say "it is a brand new day, what can I do to improve my life on this day?" Or better yet - "this is a brand new hour how can I improve my world in the next 60 minutes?

It all starts with baby steps. Not giant leaps. Look around what can you do in the next 5 minutes to improve your office space or your relationship with someone?
