Welcome to 2010!Happy New Year everyone!
A sleepless night and the tip tap of a laptop and fireworks booming in the distance. For many a year, just like today, this day has just been another day...like any other. A dinner of meat, veges and a side of mac & cheese. A basket full of laundry awaiting to be hung. A night cap of Boston Legal playing on my lappie. The coming of the new year is seldom celebrated never enjoyed never acknowledged. It just passes by. But one tradition I always acknowledged were the resolutions I have made for the year.
As 2009 comes to a close, I smile at the small ticks beside each resolution made from the previous year. I giggle at the resolutions untouched or unfinished. Either way I smile...because my future smells of new resolutions, real Aussie steaks and a 6 foot tall white man radiating love. It also makes me think of the past, present and future to come.
I get a tiny bit frustrated....somewhat amused at certain things I have found out in the previous few days sifting through old photos. Some people find it easier to detach their past from their present...somewhat ashamed of it. It brings me back to a conversation I had with an old friend; how he buried photos of his ex-girlfriend because she is of the past.
But to me...the past is proof of the present. The current success be it at being smarter, more beautiful, more successful. I always believed that you would not be who you are today without the every snapshot of the past's milestones that brought you to today's stop.
But that is just me....!!! Maybe I am just the hopeless romantic who loves the history of the past or just an emotional old fool on New Year's Day. Either way...I thank God for every embarrassing, silly and unwanted photo taken because it shows that I HAVE LIVED!
Cheers! To more snapshots to untag, giggle at and scream for.....Let's live!
