Well, It is a new year. New Year's are like Mondays (that is if you regularly feel like the week ends horribly and you wish you had gotten more done or did better on not quite everything, but close). As the old year comes to a close, I see what I have done and not done compared to my long list of "should do, want to do and need to do". I found that many of the "need to do's" were progressivly moved to the "should do" and then to the "want to do" and finally off the check list alltogether.
Every year it is is the same, "I promise, I will, I am going to, etc." and I rarely do. But I seem to be alive, I haven't murdered or burgled anyone or anything, I'm not fired or kicked out of school, my family and friends still like me, so all in all, it seems my checklist, however well intended, is not all that important. .... that being said, I will still probably end up making another one, mentally or on paper, regardless, because I am, as we all are, a creature of habit.
So here is to a new year, a new list of things unlikely to get done, and another year discovering that life moves on despite an unchecked box.
God and being alive are good
