It’s just a Tuesday

01 Jan

I’m not someone who sees the New Year as a fresh beginning, there are those that do and are successful and enthused about the future, their refreshed goals and positive intentions, I wish them well.  New Year traditionally felt like waiting for the clock to strike midnight so I could go to bed.  When I moved out of home it was often the night I was early to bed, sometimes reading a Christmas gift book, or just trying my best to sleep.  Now with portable technology I’m watching something on an app and only the crescendo of fireworks and cacophony of ships horns beyond my window signals the midnight chime, followed later with numerous sirens as the over indulged injure themselves or cause trouble.

This festive season has been intentionally scaled back and quiet because of an off-line family situation that has cast quite the shadow, preoccupying our minds with uncertainty and a side of unknown fear.  Yet it has been pleasant to not be swamped by the stresses of Christmas cheer and so forth.  

While I was googling for an heading image, I was undecided between two, so here’s the other one.


Right, let’s shock the fingers and crochet a line or four, maybe conjure up a to-do list of projects for the next month, grapple with organising my usual (not using the word normal, don’t think anything about my world can be described as that).  Happy Tuesday, yes it is only Tuesday.

    Where do you get the cartoons from…they’re hilarious. Worth waiting for Tuesday!

    What’s that word ‘Resolution; the cartoon says it all. I can’t remember when I last made one intentionally. Often it is an investment that is difficult to hold. I have no intention of rationalising why I should wriggle out of a resolution. Now, give me goals and aims, for anytime. They strike up much more of a unique friendship.

    I quite like the ‘festive season’ being scaled back, though your reasons this time may not be ones you want. As you say, it does take off a lot of pressure. I hope the family concerns you have will ease.

      I usually find my toppers in a google image search, today I searched ‘new year cartoon’ and got lost, distracted and sidetracked by the findings, lol.

      After the upheaval of the season it takes a while to get back into the (some what) orderly routine of the usual.

    I’m one of those who delights in New Years. I’d never have accomplished all that I have without this holiday as a starting line. I love it. It inspires me and gives me renewed ambition and intensity. I realise others get their great enthusiasm and inspiration from different corners and that’s cool. We’re all different and each individual gets their happiness from varied sources. The main thing is finding joy, excitement, and a reason to push forward in some way shape or form. Personally I would trade every other holiday for New Year’s Day. It’s more than just a Tuesday to me. 🙂

    I don’t bother with resolutions, instead I choose a word to inspire me, this year it’s hope, the world sure needs it! Do hope all family issues are

      Snowbird, Ireally like your thoughtful idea. It has true potential for very many as opposed to the relative few.

    Two years running I’ve made resolutions and seen them all through. Having a fresh start really works for me. It helps me regroup and rededicate myself to meet and even surpass my set goals. I am determined to be successful and help others reach their full potential too if I can.

    Happy New Year, AnneMarie. Love you immensely and pray for all the family every single day. Please hug everyone for me. Will see you all in a matter of months! When the sun comes back from it’s semi-hibernation and spring thaw is well on its way. 😘
