2011 has only a couple days left. When I think about that I am truly amazed. How on earth did this happen. Don't you get that feeling like it needed to be a wee bit longer. I don't know about any of you, but each year seems to be racing by faster and faster. I am sitting in the crowd watching the Nascar races as cars 2000 through 2011 are ripping up asphalt all trying to get to the finish line. Is there a slow motion button for that? Most likely not. Maybe I'm the one that needs the button.
And what about resolutions? I used to have those, but not anymore. I think that if there is anything you want to change or do to become a better you, just do it. NIKE said it best. Really though, don't wait for January to come by to make new goals for your life.
This New Years weekend, we will be with family. We will eat, drink, and watch the clock tick away the last minutes of 2011. We will shout out the countdown with champagne in hand. Then after kissing our significant other, we share more kisses, (on the cheek), and hugs with everyone and wishing them a Happy New Year. Oh, and one other thing.....it's a tradition to eat a cup of cooked lentils which has been said to bring you good luck.
I look forward to 2012 whether I was really ready for it or not. Life continues and I will roll with it. Wishing you all a very happy, healthy, prosperous New Year!
