It’s that time of year again.. the season of busy.
As I get older, I seem to dislike the holidays more and more. Having kids brings a fresh look at it, I enjoy seeing their excitement and remembering when I was younger and things were so much more simple.
Now, it seems it’s all about what everyone wants and greed.
Things, material possessions, stuff. What use is it really? Will you remember what you got last Christmas a year from now?
I guess I just get crabby and cynical this time of year.
Besides that, I’m just busy.
It’s the big push at work right now before the end of the year. There are parties, gatherings, cooking and baking to do. Presents to wrap and my house is only half decorated.
But I guess I am going to just choose to not stress about it. What’s the point? It’s my choice after all to do all this stuff.
I think the thing that really gets me is the fact that we all go crazy preparing to Christmas and New Years etc… Then when it’s over everything comes to a screeching halt.
And there is nothing. Just a cold, white void.
I am making a few goals for myself in 2014. I want to do some things I’ve said I’ve always wanted to do.
There will be about 3 or 4 things… starting with the first day of the year… can you guess what it is?? You’ll think I’m completely insane.
This song has really inspired me lately.. it was written for his kid, but I like to think we can all relate a little… It’s helping me keep my chin up.
