It’s a new dawn…

with a new dawn and a new day you have new opportunities, but you don’t need a new Thing.

Your Thing is your Thing is your Thing.

If you are keen for a new Thing, I’d argue you’ve not found yours yet. If you’re just keen for ‘new’ then look at what needs to be new and what doesn’t.
