As I write this, my first post of the year, we are in the midst of the second fall of snow, which hasn't stopped since about 7.30 this morning. The main road is white, and while not quite at the levels a couple of weeks ago, if it keeps up as it is, it won't be long.
So, as the song goes, another year is over, a new one just begun.
What does this year have in store? Most people write about their resolutions, and promises for what they want to achieve. I always find them a little pointless. If you want to change, why wait until the beginning of the year? Change happens when a conscious decision is made and a plan is put into action.
It's silly. My resolution? To enjoy each day, work hard and, if at all possible, work smarter; so that I can continue to enjoy the fruits of my labour.
No 'losing weight' or 'must go to the gym' or 'be nice to everyone' for me!!
Things to look forward to this year:
- Family and friends celebrations
- A lovely holiday
- The 2010 Formula 1 Grand Prix season
I admit that last one is a little shallow; but I enjoy it, and I don't follow football to any great degree, so it's my one vice.
There are just a couple of days left before it's back to normality and routine.
I just hope the snow has cleared in time.
What do you have planned for this year? Whatever they are, I wish you well, with much health and happiness.
