Look around you, look at the birthdays being celebrated and the madness of New Year eves! The idea is of change, of new beginnings.... Each person looks forward to to her/his birthday every year because of the element of the unknown. A new time-frame entails new beginnings, a fresh page of a book awaits us. The idea behind this is two-fold; we humans are waiting for life to change because we enjoy fluidity and despise monotony. And secondly we enjoy development. We are thinking beings who want to grow and not stagnate mentally.
There are so many possible options; you could quit your job, go on a vacation. You could think of little tasks for the whole family, tasks none of you have ever undertaken. You don’t always have to climb a mountain, you might want to take a walk in the park and meet a new face. It is the uncertainty of the next experience, a new task that makes each day of our lives unique.
