Lately it seems like our emails are getting flooded with invites to dinners, and to buy tix for NYE parties, no?
New Years Eve.
Why do we stress so much for this specific day- a day that brings out a variety of emotions for people.
For some, the New Year signifies the chance to put last year behind and wake up with a clean slate.
For others, it’s a chance to reflect on how much one has grown as a person over 365 days.
And yet there’s the people who view the night as party time! To celebrate at a hotel with 2000 random people and get falling down drunk, make out with strangers and wake up feeling like spun cookies.
I’m not knocking how you’ll change from 2010 to 2011 but for me- it will be a night of reflection. So much has changed for me over the past year- for the better.
What does 2011 hold?
I guess there’s no way to know- but we have to be open to the idea of change and be ready for whatever comes our way.
