hoopla-movie-poster-1933-1020174226I have been enjoying the quiet time after the holidays. We tuned into the New Year’s eve coverage and I was pondering just what all the hoopla is/was about. I am trying to make some changes for the new year, like not eating the vast amount of goodies that I was consuming during the holidays. I am reading two good books, both have material to think on. I have a mantra for the new year, which I’m keeping to myself. I hope it helps to make me calmer and happier. We shall see. In the meantime, I might knead some bread dough and be present. I want to not look back at the past, as I tend to do, and not fear the future, my usual go-to mode. Easy to say and write about, quiet another thing to practice.
