On the eve of the New Year, of course one’s minds races with all the possibilities of what direction the next twelve months could take. And, all the improvements (to self AND to others) that could possibly be made.
(However, I’ll just stick with trying to improve myself; I’ve learned I’m pretty much the only one I can do anything about anyway, so why waste my energy trying to change anyone else?)
I said in a Facebook post on New Year’s Eve a couple of years ago:
New Year’s Eve is like standing in front of an open field of deep, freshly fallen snow. Getting ready to step into it, I am both afraid of spoiling it and excited to play in it!
This is exactly how I feel every New Year’s Eve.
I’ve given my blog a new name and new look for the new year. I’m inspired to post a little more, I think. (Although never very predictably or sequentially, of course.) In fact, instead of “Life Happens” I suppose I could also have called it “Random Thoughts about (Hopefully) Encouraging and Interesting Things.” But that didn’t fit in the title space on my WordPress template.
Anyway, Happy New Year to anyone who is reading this! Hope to see you back for more posts in 2013. We’ll see what comes up with as life happens …
