01 Jan Good Morning 2011
Today, more than any other day, I wanted to be ready. I wanted to have the past behind me. I wanted the holidays to be neatly packed and put away. I wanted to have the house in order: clean and cleared of clutter. I wanted to have my *systems* set up. I wanted to have my One Little Word ready to share in a post here to properly ring in the New Year with great pomp and circumstance.
As I sit here, reflecting on all of the things I had hoped for on this New Years Day, I admit that none of the above have come to fruition.
Such is life. It never really ends up the way you plan. Alas, I also know that things always unfold exactly as they should.
Today, I will finish up this imperfect New Years post, and take it slow and easy. It was, after all the theme of Day 1’s prompt for my class Picture Winter, so it makes so much sense really. I’ll straighten myself up, start putting things away, muse on the steps I can take to get my New Years ducks in a row, so to speak. I will hold on to gratitude and remember that tomorrow is a new day, full of possibility and promise…
How have you found your New Years Day today? How will you start your 2011?
