It’s the New Year. The day after Christmas I got sick and haven’t been well since. I slept through New Year’s Eve and most of New Year’s Day. I’m not exactly in a celebratory mood. In fact, I’m downright cranky.
That being said, I hope no one is offended when I say I think that reviewing 2007 experiences and announcing 2008 resolutions are a stupid waste of time. I mean, really, if we know there’s something we should be doing, let’s stop talking about it and just do it. At the risk of being pessimistic and cynical, let’s face it: we’re probably all going to blow those resolutions by the end of next week anyway.
Right now, I’m just trying to get through one day at a time. Today, I am eating right. Today, I recycled something from the garbage. Today, I am being creative by writing this post.
Notice the use of the present tense and not future. I know myself too well and it would be presumptuous to think that I will do the same thing tomorrow.
The best advice I can give myself, and anyone else who cares what I think, is to not be overly concerned for anything beyond today. Tomorrow, we’ll all have another opportunity to do and live right.
And tomorrow will take care of itself. I’m going back to bed now. Have a good day.
