The same sun that shone on the 31st of December 2008 is still the same that shines today in 2009.
The New Year doesn’t bring about any physiological change on earth, but the idea of calendars and years is to divide time into manageable and recordable periods. A tool to manage time because a time lost can never be regained.
The beginning of the year is not a time to make flimsy new year resolutions we are bound to break.it is a time to take stock of how you faired in the previous year, how many of your set goals you could achieve and hence draw out new plans on achieving on achieving your present year’s goal.
Come January the next year, you would have either lost or gained a year.
