Good old number 3, when everyone at your New Year's gathering says 3, you know you're in the home stretch and it's almost New Year's city. Maybe you'll finally tell your boss how you feel in the new year? Maybe you'll actually start losing weight and getting into shape? Or maybe you'll just age. One year closer to the grave. The number 3 can't answer any of these questions. It's just a number. Are you?
Sweet number 6. If there were only 6 things you could change about yourself in the new year, it'd be a godsend. But unfortunately, there just aren't enough numbers in even the world's largest math book to calculate that. It's not that you're a failure, you're just not where you want to be in life. When you were younger you were so full of hope. So full of potential, now you just hope you can get through this countdown without sobbing and wondering why you couldn't have tried harder in 2015.
No matter how badly you want it to change, 2016 won't be any different.
