At last it has arrived—2006. Happy New Year to all!!!
And now back to your business. School starts on Tuesday (at least for Albany) and I’m sure all those out there with jobs are back to the grindstone tomorrow or the next day as well. Resolutions have been made, and whether they will be kept or not is a test of endurance. Days will go on as they have before…at the moment cold and rainy. Not that this is bad–it just seems like New Years sweep by faster now, and any time now they will become just days, regular old days. Sure maybe they’re spiced up with some music and dancing, but it passes and January 2 plops you right down where you were before. If you think about it there is nothing special about the 1st of January…its just another first of the month, just like any other 12 AM is the first moment of the new day. But we have come to choose this particular day as the one on which we make our celebrations and resolutions…and so here go mine.
Time continues. The old year has passed like the one before and the new one will with equal or greater speed. So what am I going to do about it? MAKE THE BEST OF IT. or try to anyways. My resolution for the new year is to take charge of my life, to find some direction to urge myself onto. Time may pass, but I don’t have to spend the time waiting for something or someone to come around the corner to add a spike to the flow of time. I want to try some new things, meditate on the meaning of life, take control and not let my activities control what I do. Call me ambitious, but I’ll do my best. Looking at it maybe I should have chosen something simpler-like making my bed every day
Soooo, what are your resolutions for the next 365 days?
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish you a most excellent 2006
