The 12th Month Reset
It starts with an emotional shift—evolving from excitement to anxiety, and finally, warmth.
As the clock strikes twelve and people in this little city begin to rush to the streets, light fireworks, and open up their homes to people, I begin a process of resetting. It starts with an emotional shift—from excitement to anxiety to warmth, before vague thoughts of yesterday, the week, month, year, and even a decade before takes over. Then finally it ends in an afterthought of unanswered questions.
By morning, I begin to visualize the days ahead. My body is refueled with energy, and I feel an utmost need to see the world outside.
The first day of the year always gives me hope. I feel myself reset as if everything I did yesterday was something I did last year and I’ve been given a chance to start all over again—a chance to do better and to live life the way it should be lived.
