Each year when New Year’s rolls around, it’s nearly impossible to visit Facebook without seeing posts about resolutions, new beginnings, and putting the previous year in the books. Several posts I saw complained about how terrible 2012 was and that folks were ready for a fresh start. Now, I’m not one to make resolutions, but I’m also not going to go as far as being critical of those who do, but why should we have to wait until the calendar changes to give ourselves a fresh start? Obviously, there were some terrible tragedies that occurred in 2012, but don’t we have some of those every year? Should 2012 only be defined by the bad things that happened? It’s kind of like throwing the baby out with the bath water if you ask me. Even on the minute level of looking at one day, do you call the whole day terrible because one guy cut you off in traffic that morning? It’s never too late to start the day over. The same goes here. Think about it…
