Goodbye Holidailies, hello 2013
Holidailies has been fun, and it certainly brought this old blog of mine back to life. So at least one of my new year goals is to keep up the momentum. Getting three ‘Best of Holidailies’ selections was a nice surprise as well. I’d like to thank the Holidailies creators for the fun of a different kind of challenge. I’ll be back next year.
After the excitement of Christmas, I prefer New Year to be a quiet and reflective time. I never make resolutions, but I usually set a few goals, in a vaguely determined sort of way. I have set myself on a five year plan, although I am not entirely sure what I am planning to achieve at the end of five years, or even in the next five minutes. But it gives me the illusion of structure, and the hope that I will actually achieve something.
This is the third year – so far it is going quite well. I actually think at the end of the five years I may even know what I want to achieve. Or I will have achieved it. Or something. God, I sound like Bridget Jones.
Anyway, I fully intend to have the best 2013 I can, and keep laughing and pretending to be 18, which is a lot easier if I avoid looking in mirrors. I used to have a fabulous artist friend in her 60s, who said that she always felt 16 inside – then she caught sight of herself in a mirror, and thought “Who’s that old bag?”
Now, in my 60s, I know exactly what she means.
