For me the holidays end the day after Christmas. Two months of shopping, eating, parties and I can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Don’t get me wrong. I love the holidays! But as with eating turkey, at the end I am good until next November. Since the kids have grown we don’t do a whole lot for New Years. Usually sit in and watch it on T.V. and that is fine by me. I’m not big into freeze my patootie off for hours to see lights in the air. Now all that is left is putting the decorations and tree away. I’ll give it a couple of more days though.
So the new year begins and most everyone makes their new years resolution to have something done by the end of the year. I’ve done this many times, and not once have I manage to keep it. So now I all I want is a year full of happy memories with my family and friends. If I lose weight, yeah for me! Now for the one project I do need to work on and finish. My new novel Fated to Be book 2 of the Destiny series. Since I have this week off I am going to work on it as much as I can.
For those whose new year starts January 1st Happy New Year and may you have some semblance of peace and happiness. I know there is a lot of strife in this world of ours, but try and find something that makes you smile, no matter how small it is. It’s amazing how even the smallest spark of hope can make your day a much better day. Find it, hold onto for all its worth and maybe spread a little of it around to make someone else smile, even if it’s just for a moment in time.
