New year, Old me, And New outlook

It’s the dawn of a new year, and we are excited and anxious simultaneously for what it brings. Many of us make new year’s resolutions and expect ourselves to be different regarding self-love, finances, lifestyle, career, relationships, and more. This part of the year is regarded as the phase of transition and evolution. As we step into a new year, there is renewed hope and faith. There is that small light on the other side of the tunnel. Hope for a better year is what expects us to be newer versions of ourselves. 

Well, is it necessary to 'change' ourselves and try to do something different to feel happy about what is in store for us in the coming year? Or, is it necessary to go on, do the drill, be more effective in what we've already done, and keep faith in ourselves that matters more? 

It is all perspectives. The more we try to ‘change’ ourselves each year (which most often loses its pace after a certain point into the new phase, like many new year’s resolutions that fail), the more we set ourselves up for dissatisfaction and disheartenment. The point here is to be ourselves – each year, every year. It’s natural to lose people, gain interests, have career shifts, and witness life drastically changes over the years. 

However, it’s not the best idea to think of ourselves as people who need change and newness every year – simply because it’s different from how it works. For example, if we plan on going on a diet or starting a new hobby, it’s best to create the same day than wait for the new year to come. It simply shows we are not rooting for success in that area. 

So, the whole new year, the new me phase, has to be understood differently. So, why not think, new year, old me, new outlook? That sounds perfect!
