As I look out of my window, the Christmas light maze that dominated my neighbourhood is finally gone and has since been quickly replaced by an acrobatic horse show, will this be the first of many shows for the new year that will blanket my views outside of my window? Wondering what will be next?
Actually, I’m looking forward to what is next…..I think most of us are done with the eating and drinking bit of the holidays, or at least for a while. For those friends we didn’t see over the holidays, “let’s get together for drinks” seems to have morphed into the month of January. I’m trying so hard to be good but it’s not easy, the thought of eating makes my stomach grumble…..not to mention the guilt. For me, the phrase “Happy New Year” comes with a little anxiety, saying goodbye to another year, an old friend, however, you want to look at it. Putting the bad stuff into the past, learning from your mistakes and improving on, going forward. A friend asked me if I have any goals for the New Year, I would like to say, “absolutely” but the truth be told, I have a lot of “ideas,” do those count? How many of us have sat writing lists of all the things we want to do, perhaps some of us refer to this as a bucket list. I’ve decided to tackle my list since I’ve been called out on it……yes, the dreaded, ” you always have ideas, do something about it” conversation, which brings me to my blog, i.e. new beginnings of a new year.
I am passionate about so many things that I thought this would be the perfect medium for all of those “ideas”, be it travel, fashion, design, my new crush of the moment or what’s going on out there that gets my heart racing. And like the show across the street, which will likely be replaced by another, I too will be wondering what is next…
