The day does offer promise
A chance for something new
Time for new direction
To make a change or two

This burst of inspiration
Does come but once a year
A time for something different
And hopes that change is near

How will you use this moment
What will you choose to change
What aspect of your story
Are you poised to rearrange

In truth it’s just illusion
It’s not about the day
It’s how you view the future
And challenge in your way

A new year is the start of goal setting or a chance for a do over in the new year.   It’s a wake-up call for many people and unfortunately it also leads to a lot of activities like gym memberships that are at best short lived.  New years is a bit of an artificial construct in its meaning.  At best it is a time to reflect and evaluate our current direction and see what changes we should make.
