Happy New Year - What Are You Gonna Do?
As the new year looms closer, people are furiously reviewing their life - the past year and what did and and more importantly what did not happen. In the next few hours, friends will begin loud drunken ramblings of how 2013 is going to be better than 2012. Everyone is going to lose weight, work out more, try to stay connected to friends and families, stop and smell the flowers blah blah blah.
New year's resolutions are full of suck because instead of improving our lives, they instead make us feel like crap and force us into a grumpy hole of sadness. The part everyone forgets is it didn't take an evening to get your life to whatever state it is in now.
One evening's promises, no matter how well intentioned, will not change your life. Think about it, if you eat nothing but bacon and tater tots for a month, you are going to get back to your healthy, svelte self overnight.
So, I'm not going to spend this evening dwelling on every craptastic thing that happened this year. That will get me nowhere except a direct path to cranky town. Not the best way to start a year. What I will think about tonight though is my hopes for a better 2013.
For some reason, 2012 has been a giant poo covered dust bunny under the couch for most people, myself included. My hope for 2013 is simple, I wish for everyone to have a better year.
Well, that and for one of my Cleveland teams to make it to a playoff.
A girl can dream...
