New Beginnings

January 7, 2012


Saturday, the day after Epiphany. I always think the New Year begins today rather than January 1st. I don’t know why, but in my head it doesn’t begin until the holidays are truly over. And now, they are. Time to take down the tree, wrap up the ornaments and say good – bye to all the beauty that makes me happy at Christmas. This is the time when I will dust, sweep and clean up all the clutter and chaos from last year and move forward. Is this a good feeling? It should be, but for some reason I feel a bit maudlin. Ok, maybe just introspective. My Pollyanna isn’t working this a.m. and that’s ok. I can embrace it rather than putting a smile in place when it’s not there. Besides, no one is in the house, but Winnie and she’s just happy if I pat her head. Being introspective is ok. It gives you an opportunity to reflect on the past in order to move forward. And I will; move forward that is, after I finish another cup of coffee, and look at the tree before I denude it and take it to the street.  Reflection is good I have to remember,  and if I concentrate and center myself I will grow.


Why is it that we all crave to love? Why is it that we want this so truly madly and deeply? Oh yes, not my line. I’ve just borrowed it from a movie from the 90’s. I will think about that later, but not today. This year I will let that go. I will just let everything be.


I’m not feeling it this morning. To force yourself to be always chipper is tiresome. So today the word is contentment. Let’s hope it comes through.
