This rolls me right into the New Year, another crazy party. I have been developing a theory over the past few days, and that is that New Year's day comes at exactly the wrong time of year for the Northern Hemisphere. There is all this pressure to make your New Year resolutions, gear up for making plans, changes, and do something to make your life better. But really, we are in the deep of winter, and biologically we should be... sleeping a lot. And eating a lot to build up some fat! We should be snuggled up, chatting over warm cups of tea. Not getting all prepared for making changes or running around doing a bunch of stuff.
If you go with my theory, is it any wonder that we fail at our resolutions? My resolution is to put off the resolution thing until the first day of Spring. We could do a combination Spring Cleaning with our Yearly Resolutions. It makes so much more sense to me. What do you think?
