I’ve never been one to make new year’s resolutions. Nor am I going to start now. Still, I feel like it is a good opportunity to reflect on things and think about what I want to accomplish this year and what I need to do better than last year. I remember writing a post last year describing everything I wanted to do, and most of it didn’t get done. Am I going to be doing the same thing this year? I hope not. But apparently determination only goes so far, because most of the time I lose my enthusiasm before I get started. Nevertheless, I know something needs to change, and I’ll tentatively say I’m going to figure out a plan so that this year will be different.
The Christmas season is now over. I had planned some posts, but with all the things that I was doing for Christmas, I didn’t get to publish anything. So my next post will be something that I had planned to post before. This Christmas was hard, being the first one without my sister. It still feels like the family is not complete. Normally, she would play a big part in decorating the house. Now I didn’t have the will to do more than decorate the tree and put lights in two windows. We greatly missed her presence around the tree when we were opening gifts. I keep thinking about what I would have given her if she were still here.
Now that Christmas is over, it’s time for me to get things in order somehow. As before, I have a list of things to do, and I need a plan to accomplish things. What am I waiting for? I’ll get started tomorrow.
