For someone who is generaly so against change and all things related to it, I find the new year and the changes it often brings quite enjoyable. I like the idea of a new diary, a clean sheet for another years gratitude. I like an excuse to redouble my spiritual efforts.
In truth I don't need a new year to do this, or a new diary. In truth I do this a dozen times a week, sometimes a dozen times a day. The ability to redouble my efforts at any given point has been an important and often used asset.
Still, nevertheless, a clean sheet for the coming years inventory is almost as enjoyable as a clean sheet on my bed. Almost but of course not quite.
