I used to think New Years was the dumbest holiday ever, but I'm gaining a new found respect for it. There's something intriguing and inspiring about the possibility of renewal and redemption that comes along each new year. It's a chance to start over, to try new things, to create new goals, to realize things don't always have to be same old same old... The problem comes when we put too much pressure on ourselves to make sure we're perfect (or our idea of perfect). It's never going to happen, so be easy on yourself and celebrate the small victories, and continue to live and learn.
