Here we are 5 days into the New Year, and life has not changed one whit! Things are slow to pick up and take off, much to the chagrin of my inner pre New Year urgency voice. Our tree is still up, our halls are still decked, and we have yet to celebrate Christmas with my in-laws (much to their dislike).
So instead of racing full frontal towards all the new tomorrows, I seem to be caught between yesterdays and midnight madness. Iíll blame it on being sick. Ya, thatís what Iíll do.
Yet I have the sneaky suspicion that January is going to prove to be a changing month. There are goings-on in our office that have quietly been on the back burner for late 2005 but should be coming to a head this month. What and how that all means is anyoneís guess at the moment. This little fact will keep me on the Ďanticipationí side of a new day, in a new month in a new year.
How do you approach a new year? With anxiety? With anticipation? Did you know itís a new year?
