I tell people - when they ask what my resolutions are or if I made any - that I don't believe in them. (It's hard to when people say "never again" to something - like smoking, and then three hours later take it up again.) I think if you are resolved to do something, than you should start when you have a desire to make a change. Waiting for another day seems silly to me.
I suspect that it also has something to do with my being really, really fond of new beginnings - according to my own rhythms and nature.
I don't feel an attachment to January first, it feels arbitrary to me. It only seems like a holiday because I can hear the fireworks and shouts and the banging of pans.
New beginnings come at different times for me.
They come with a thought.
A desire.A new moon.
A cup of peppermint tea.
They come in with the rolling thunder, and cleansing rains.
They come on a Sunday morning, like on the first day of fall.Happy Mabon to you.
