Happy New Year!
I know many people make formal resolutions, and I used to do the same thing, but the older I get the more pressure that seems to be! Yes, I'd like to do some things differently this year, and I'd also like to accomplish a few things which have been on my wish list for years. But I do think I also want to learn to take one day at a time and enjoy it for what it is.
So today I am doing some much needed writing on a project which is very exciting, and the grocery shopping needs to be done. A salad needs to be invented to take to a pot-luck tonight, and a few house-work items need to be accomplished. This all seems doable and enjoyable. A good day.
Of course, I can't help but think of a few other things which should be done within the next couple of days. Like the photos which need to be selected, edited, resized and submitted for competition Tuesday. Then there's the desk which needs to be swept clean so I can prepare for my first classes this coming week. The computer files need some reshuffling and organizing for my classes, too. Should I take down the rest of the Christmas decorations? The deep cleaning can wait:). When will I get to that totally irresistable t-shirt quilt I want to make out of my old directing shirts? As if I didn't go on a quilt-making frenzy all fall?!
And once again I'm caught up in the life which takes over and keeps you from settling into a calm, day-at-a-time mindset. Did I say Mindset? That's the book sitting here waiting to be finished. Excellent read, by the way. There's also the book I just received for Christmas, the new Stephen King book about what would have happened if the Kennedy assasination had been stopped.
Or maybe I'll just sit down with Roamin and plot our next photo adventure. Yes, that sounds like just the ticket on a cold winter's evening, in front of the fire.
What about you? Did you make any resolutions, or are you planning anything exciting?
