The other day Pig-farmer asked me if I had made my resolutions. At that time, I was delighting in post-Christmas quiet while pouring myself a mug of coffee. I gave him my very best, scariest, don’t-mess-with-me look. What the heck? I mean, I was still walking around the house getting pieces of wrapping paper and tape stuck to my socks. The baskets of laundry the boys brought home with them were still over-flowing and trying to co-mingle with the new Christmas items despite my efforts to beat them back. But, he had planted a seed. Made me think about what I should be doing to correct my wild and woolly ways.
I do like the thought of a crisp, new year with crisp, new calendar pages. Turning over a new leaf. Fresh starts. So, of course, I plan to lose weight, exercise, eat healthily, drink more water, save money, organize my house, and keep it spotless. At least for a day or two in 2016. But none of those will happen on the same day. I promise. Now, how’s that for refreshing honesty?
I see value in considering the future and goal-setting over drifting along. However, my life rarely tends to follow any plans or even drift. It often gets the steering wheel stuck a little shy of centered with the throttle wide open. I just hang on and roll with where I land, looking for something to enjoy.
That said, I plan to enjoy 2016. Care to join me?
Thank you to all my JustMaketheCoffee readers! I haven’t given up blogging. Just took a needed reprieve. I raise my coffee mug to you and 2016.
