Same Ol' Same Ol' 

New year, new calendar; but in reality it’s the same ol’ same ol’.

Why do we have this totally unrealistic belief in what a new year holds? Is it just wishful thinking – hope beyond hope?

Why do we believe that we will magically organize our homes or offices, lose weight, eat healthier, improve our minds, practice piano, be kinder, go to church, and exercise more just because the calendar changes?

The only thing that can change overnight is the calendar page. I read somewhere that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. I wonder how long it takes to break old ones?
