Starting Over

A new year. A fresh start. An opportunity to set new goals. A chance to lose weight, exercise more, connect with more people, and discover a new hobby. An arbitrary date selected to begin big life changes.

For the people north of the equator, the date happens in the winter season. For those on the southern side, it is summer. The northern latitudes have the option of slimming down while still covered by clothing that hides the flaws. As the warmer weather approaches, they can peel off layers without great shame.

I always wondered about those in the southern hemisphere. Does it bother them to start a weight loss program when it is already beach season? Is it too late?

Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? You can choose to be anyone alive today, or someone gone long ago. If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.
