Tuesday, thoughts in between…

time flies

I have always liked the couple of days after Christmas.   The craziness of the days before Christmas are over  and now there is a time of simple quiet.  Oh, it’s a quiet  that won’t last more than a day or two;  but they are welcome days after the rush and busy schedules of the holiday.

I find the days between Christmas and the New Year a time of little, if any, stress. There is not much to do during this in between time.  These few days are a time of reflection and rest before the beginning of the new year and all the plans and expectations and resolutions made  at the end of the old year.

Me?  I have no great plans for next year,  I don’t know what to expect, and I won’t make New Year’s resolutions.  What I know from experience is that things will happen, planned or not, expect the unexpected because there are always surprises, and making resolutions is a waste of time, they are sure to be forgotten.  This mindset may seem unwise and unexciting and non-productive to all the type A personality people,  driven to do more, get more, and be more.   But it works for me.
