New Year can happen at ANYTIME of the year!

I suppose the reason you were brought to this post is utter confusion by the title therefore you clicked the link to it :). Yes the title is correct but let me explain.

This is inspired by seeing posts today about New Year, resolutions and change! It's a general observation I had while reading all these posts! Every year as one year comes to a close and the New Year is around the bend a lot of people come up with all sorts of things they want to do and change either by changing themselves or their life. A New Year brings a new kind of hope to many people. A chance to start over.

One question that came to mind as I was reading everything was, "Why do we wait for New Year to make a change?" If you want to do something to make your life better or if something needs changing - why not do it NOW? Which brings me to the reason for the title of this post. Any day, any hour, any minute you can decide what direction you want your life to take and take action accordingly. A year is the general amount of time we look back on our lives to see how things changed that year. From whatever day you decide to make your life different in any way it's going to be a "New Year" for you! A "New Year can happen at ANYTIME of the year!"

Of course some New Year resolutions need to take place in the actual New Year because each year is a new working year and jobs can open up more at that time and it can be a new study year for some students where they've finished a course and new courses are only starting the following year. As well as many other examples I'm sure you can find.

I am writing about those changes we could make at anytime of the year but sometimes people keep going with things the way they are and wait until the New Year to make a change for example to decide to have a heathier diet or change themselves or the direction of their lives. Yes actual New Year could be the time you have set for a change but remember if you feel you are stuck where you are, ask yourself a question, "why are you waiting for the New Year to make a change?" Just GO FOR IT :)!

I am not saying there is a right or wrong, of course New Year resolutions can be very exciting with the prospect of change and fun to make but for the times when we need to make a change, don't hang on and wait for the New Year to make your life better.

What are your resolutions this year?

Have a happy New Year!

The Introduction

This blog post is brought to you by the fact that there were stampeding elephants above me which is the reason I am now awake... I am not sure what they were doing upstairs with a hoover or just jumping up and down for pure fun :) but nevertheless it woke me up and I felt inspired to write.

It's a beautiful sunny day on the coast in England or it will be, as a I look out my window I just see white but I'm sure the sun is there somewhere... This time last year we had snow. I don't know if you have ever seen what snow looks like on a beach before but it was one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen! I also attemped to make snow angels in the snow last year... I say attempted for a good reason. It was my first big snowfall in my life aside from seeing snow once before up a mountain. So of course I was like a kid in disneyland, excited about everything!

The reason I am talking about my experience in the snow is because it was around this time of year, December. Now it's around this time of year in the Christmas season I have started my new blog. What this blog will be about and what my posts will be about is everything I feel inspired to write.

Maybe you feel something when you build or when you sing or when you dance or whatever your talents are. I feel it when I am writing.

The title for my blog "Home Sweet Home" is a place where you feel at home. Not necessarily just where you live but anywhere that makes you feel comfortable and at home. Right now I am happy right where I am and where I live is my Home Sweet Home. I am also a traveller so I will be writing posts from other places too and wherever I write from is my "Home Sweet Home" because if I'm writing it's a place I feel comfortable.

The song I started my blog with in my previous post is the theme song for my blog. I chose this song not only based on the tune but on the lyrics. If you listen to the lyrics carefully of my theme song you'll know why I chose it. You will find a lot of songs on my blog no doubt because I love music.

"I can do all things in him who strengthens me" ~ Phillipians 4:13.

With that verse I begin my new blog.

God Bless,
