Happy New Year!

Updated: Jan 20, 2020



As far as I could remember, I've always liked New Year's Day. As a child, it meant my brother's fireworks and my mom's giving thanks for the past year and praying for guidance for the coming year. It also meant not doing anything foolish, not spending on anything and starting a new diet.


As an adult, it's a day when I can start a new page, begin again with the same set of resolutions that I've failed at in the previous years, or kickoff a new direction in my life, something like Groundhog Day.


Whatever and however you feel about New Year's Day, I hope it will move you towards a better year!
