We are a society that begs for new beginnings. We celebrate birthdays as markers in ways to start changes in our lives but the New Year's celebration is one that we can mark on the calender and share together. There are even resolutions we can make as we enter the new year. Where else can you say you are going to start a diet, do more for your community, cease smoking or sin less? Yet, there is the stigma to resolutions that... no one ever keeps to them so success is isn't always expected. The ultimate scapegoat, we all need to have something to blame failure on so it's commonly known that if you plan to start something you need to announce it on New Year's Eve.
As for me, it's been a very good year. And my New Year's resolution is to do very little because that way I can always surpass it. Call me an overachiever. I better send this out as there are just seconds to go before the end of the year. I'd like to thank all the subscribers to the 80's Nuts Newsletter at http://www.80smusiccentral.com and the listeners to the 80's Nuts Update at http://www.80sairwaves.com. May your new year be as bright as the stars that I report about.
