The reasons for this are probably many - personal realizations, political instability, economic consolidation and mostly uncertainty about the future. In my opinion, such times are perfect for new beginnings. When one is not drowned in the hubris of a great yesterday nor drunk with the possibilities of tomorrow. Grand plans, sweeping changes, hairy goals - this is the season for renewal.
As a wise man once said: Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached!
So here's to all of us becoming better, wiser, happier, healthier in the New Year. Wish everyone a fantastic 2011! and a marvellous decade ahead!!
