Where have you been?
We get a lot of that sort of question this time of year. Reflect upon the past year. Set goals for the coming year.
As if we can't set goals any other time.
OK, that was kind of harsh ... so maybe you have picked up that I am not a big fan of the end of December / beginning of January resolutions / fresh year, fresh start thing.
For me, each day is a fresh start. Don't wait until January 1 to make whatever change or resolution you think you should make. Do it today.
Leaving you with a video of one of my favorite songs this time of year. December, performed live by Sara Bareilles. The sound quality is a little rough at times, but I still love it.
Lyrics at the bridge:
Distill a whole year down into a day
Act like we all start over with a pristine slate
But to get yourself a new life you've got to give the other one away
And I'm starting to believe in the power of a name
Cause it can't be a mistake if I just call it change
Go, change today. I'll even go and change my blog's header!
