As I sit down to write this, it’s about 6pm on the 31st December 2015
New Year’s Eve.
And despite the luxury of a four day weekend, I have been struggling to shake the funk that has clouded my mood for the last few days.
It was easy while I was working, to blame the fact that I was having to work, while hubby and so many of my friends were having time off, but today, I too was able to ignore the uniform and simply stop and reflect.
Well reflect after the grocery shopping was done and a batch of brownies made.
I could hear myself sniping and grumbling at hubby for stupid little nonsense and that was enough to make me stop and wonder why?
Post holiday, Christmas funk, is probably a big part although The birthday I wasn’t looking forward to, came and went and ended up being a delightful day.
This time last year, I was plotting and planning. The adventure, a year of working, saving and then flying off on what was probably the best trip I have ever taken.
So perhaps it makes sense I am feeling a little lost right now.
I am a goal setter. A list maker. A planner.
And right now, I need to find new goals.
My bucket list needs revision. New challenges need to be found.
2016 so far is a blank page.
No “resolutions” although I perhaps need to shed a few kilos.
Tonight, I will be bringing in the new year in the company of good friends, raising a glass to the adventures of the old year and possibilities of the new.
Time then to look forward, shake these ridiculous blues and find some new adventures and goals.
Perhaps no fabulous trip to far off lands, but there is art to create, and maybe , just maybe, this is the year that I finally get a new dining suite.
Thank you all, those who continue to visit this little blog of mine.
May you all have a wonderful new year, filled with love, happiness and good health.
May you have adventures, try new things and step out of your comfort zone.
Laugh lots, appreciate the little things and don’t be afraid to dream.
Life is short, precious and sometimes unpredictable.
