Neither. It’s the end of August and not what we would normally consider a New Year. But I always feel that this is more of a New Year than the traditional January 1st. Perhaps January might be better described as ‘Another Year’ ( yes, I know it sounds depressing).
I don’t know how may others think the same way, but it always seems like fall is a more appropriate ‘New Year’ for me. It’s the start of a new school year, the start of fall sport and activities, a change in the weather for some of us. And for me a feeling of rejuvenation, a feeling of more focus, more planning, more changes, heck more resolutions.
I may be feeling it more this year as I am switching employers. But every employment change has also taken place around this time of year.
Anyone else see fall/September as a new beginning?
