As we enter into the new year, we are surrounded by well wishes and new year's resolutions that are quickly forgotten before they even start. We have high hopes and expectations for the year ahead- I guess that's why it's called a new year. In a way, we feel like we have been given a second chance to start afresh. But how quickly do we fall back into our old routine and do the exact same things we did yesterday (last year)? I used to be excited about setting resolutions but I stopped doing that a long time ago. I figured if there's something that I need to change, I'm going to change it now because every second, minute, hour, day, week, month or year that I'm alive, I'm getting a fresh start to make things right and be the best me possible.
Come to think of it, we will go through the same things in 2014 for the most part - same work (even with a new job, it quickly becomes routine), same friends, same relationships, same everything. The only thing that will be different about 2014 is your attitude towards the daily mundane things. The only difference between you and the other person is how you choose to turn the ordinary mundane things of life into extraordinary experiences. Be grateful for every moment because you are not guaranteed the next second of your life.
