That “new car” smell. Scooping into a freshly opened jar of peanut butter. Stepping onto new-fallen snow. What’s the common denominator? Well, besides being strangely satisfying, they’re all the start of something new. And we, as humans, love the idea of something fresh and new. Just look at the New Year’s resolutions we make as the ball drops on December 31st. The year ahead is a blank page ready to be written upon, and we vow that this year, we’ll do better.
