I am going to go in a different direction. I love the idea of a new year. The idea of a fresh start has always appealed to lớn me. I believe that a new year means a chance to lớn put the past behind us and start clean. In that regard, I understand why people jump on the diet bandwagon và purge their homes. The part that I don’t buy, is that you need to do it on January 1st. You can make changes on any of the 365 (this year we even get an extra day lớn make a change) days of the year. That is the beauty of being human, we get khổng lồ make changes in our lives every single day. In May you can decide to lớn eat better, or in February you can quit smoking.
