I don’t celebrate the Gregorian new year as I was born in a Persian country with Persian celebrations. Our new year starts at Farvardin 1st, which is around March 21. It’s the start of Spring called Nowruz.
However, the world is running with the Gregorian calendar therefore it is important. My blog dating system is also set to Gregorian calendar.
I really like the term “new year new me” as it is used to express the feeling of need for changing the bad habits and replacing them with good ones. However, I think human beings, such me myself, are always trying to be better and a new year, in this matter, is just working as an mental empowering thing.
But aside from that, I think I don’t want a new me. I hope in the new year I keep fighting for justice and I keep providing what I can for the benefit of all. I hope I don’t change much and if I change, it’s for the better of all, not just me myself.
I hope my fundamentals don’t change. Human beings grow and a sign of that is that our ideas change but for now, I don’t wish a new me as my ideas and ideals are pretty great, in my mind at least.
So new year, not a new me; hopefully.
