The New Year begins today (Gregorian calendar), and again on February 12th (lunar calendar), and again on April 14th (Sinhalese tradition) — the list goes on.
We invented the symbolic day of new beginnings.
If you commit to making an important change today, it’s not the New Year that is giving you permission — it’s you deciding to change something about yourself today, just like it is you who decides whether today or some other day is when the new year begins.
Change is (and always has been) your invention.
