First…just for the record…I am not giving up caffeine as a New Year’s resolution – I’m on my 3rd tall cup of coffee…as I have over-dramatized in the past…I gave up delicious food, cigarettes and I don’t drink to excess or do recreational drugs…I may give up nutrasweet but I’m not giving up my coffee…my daughters and my therapist think I should start drinking herbal tea…::*rolling eyes r-e-a-l-l-y. I’m not drinking herbal tea.
I think New Years Day should be renamed Drama Day…seriously…can’t you just feel the positive vibes from everyone in the atmosphere today. All the excitement with a new beginning..even the poor suckers who chose to consume too much alcohol..of course, they are trying to exude their poison along with possibly the promise to not drink anymore because they never want to feel this way again?
Who doesn’t have hopes and dreams for the new year…some may say that it can’t be any worse than 2011 and some may just hope it is better than 2011 others just hope to continue and prosper in 2012…I finally stopped making promises on January 1st…they only produced guilt around 3 in the afternoon…the same way Monday morning and dieting used to spiral downward around 11am.
I hope we can keep the enthusiasm for life and for the new beginning in 2012…..and if we don’t…only 364 days until we can do this all over again!
Until next time….
