While the new year moves us forward and offers us more hope than ever this year, take advantage of the opportunities presented today to allow the effect of a new beginning to influence your life. A “new beginning” is a beginning that involves leaving behind past mistakes, mistakes, or disagreements and recognizing that they are preventing things from progressing the way you would like them to. January 1 is the most notable of these milestones, but the fresh start effect applies to other new beginnings as well. While this may seem like a bad thing, it gives us a boost into the future and helps us to seize these moments of fresh start with new vigor.
American definition and synonyms for a new beginning from Macmillan Education's online English dictionary. A professional crossroads, a birthday, an anniversary, a holiday, or the start of a new week may be enough to bring about the effect of a fresh start.
