Although time is our own invention it seems to serve us well – at least most of the time. And just as we need our Mondays (to clean, get organized and start fresh in little ways), we need a new year for a fresh start in bigger ways and to bring closure to the previous one. That way we don’t have the impression of existing in an endless timeless cloud. I know, New Year’s resolutions usually quickly dissolve. Still, they are important, especially if we are not used to taking stock during the year. It’s good to pause and breathe and assess where we have gone in the past year and where we ‘d like to go in the coming year and years. So make a plan. Here’s to 2013!
