Or “In 2010, I made some mistakes. I hope 2011 is better to me.” Or “2011 will be my year to shine.”
My bad side:
I sympathize with your problems, I do, but at the end of the day, January 1st, 2011 is just another day. The same as any other day - 24 hours. Nothing has changed from Dec 31st to Jan 1st. As nice as it sounds, New Year is NOT a new start. All your problems carry over.
My good side.
New Year is NOT a new start, but EVERYDAY and ANY DAY can be a new start if you choose it to be. Nothing’s gonna happen on January 1st, 2011. YOU make things happen whenever you choose to and when you work for it.
There are people who hope fancy dates and special numbers will change their lives, and there are people who who change their own lives TODAY.
(this post is not directed at anyone specifically)
And for things that happened outside your control (I’m not talking about things like your boyfriend/girlfriend dumped you, I’m talking about things like the Haiti Earthquake) - I’m sorry for the tragedy, that’s life, and I hope 2011 is better for you.
