Every new year there’s a spike in divorces right after New Year’s Eve. It’s not because we cheat on dec 31st, it’s because we’re fooled again by the fact that we can seek a new start by changing the outside conditions.
A new watch, a new job, a new wife. They can change part of our surroundings but won’t change us. We will still be the same, with our problems and limits. And until we face and fix those limits, until we go above and beyond to believe that we, too, can be different, no, there won’t be any difference between what we were yesterday, and what we are today.
New Year’s Eve doesn’t change much until we do.
