January 2020 is here and, not only is it the first month of a new year, it is the beginning of a new decade. Being the beginning of a new cycle, the ‘NewYear’ often represents for people a time to have an honest look at their lives and many make New Year’s Resolutions in an attempt to make the changes they see are needed.
This first month of the new year is often a time when we are willing to examine ourselves more deeply.
We would like to hear from you whether you feel there is something about this first month of the new year that feels more significant? Why is it that many of us are prompted by the ‘New Year’ to take stock and get an overview of our life? Is it because we have sense of it being the end of a cycle and the beginning of another? If so, why do we wait until the new year to start a cycle when every day, every moment is the opportunity for a new beginning?
Our Topic of Conversation for January is asking our readers to comment on their experiences with coming to the end of a cycle and beginning a new one.
If you are someone who makes New Year’s Resolutions have they worked for you or have you found it hard to carry them through? What has supported you to commit to the changes you felt to make in your life?
