optimistic change

by vivek

we are used to the routine where
a day comes and goes by,
a week comes and goes by,
a month comes and goes by,
and a year come and goes by, i.e. after a prolonged duration (365 days/52 weeks/12 months to be exact) at a very slow pace – having gone through the cycle of days, weeks, and months before the switch.

We are aware of the insignificance of this, yet we still stick to celebrating and welcoming in a new year irrespective of what we will make of the coming year.

Optimism, the best way to sum up being awake till midnight and welcoming the new dawn (even though it is just another new day on the wrong side of the calendar).
