Another year draws to a close. The holidays are finished. All that remains are the bills (if one uses credit cards in lieu of cash or debit) and the chore of putting away the decorations. Holiday company has departed, or will soon depart, and life will shortly return to its usual nine-to-five routine.
The last week of December is a time to reflect upon the waning year. One adds up the good and the bad and hopes that the good outweighed the bad. It is a time to sum up one’s behaviors, for some, with New Year’s resolutions made (and all too soon, broken.)
It’s also a time to look ahead to the future. The brand new year is a blank piece of paper upon which nothing has yet been written. What will fill this paper in 2008? Will the story at the end of the year read like a comedy or like a soap opera? Or perhaps the story of 2008 will be a romance or a tragedy. Maybe 2008 will be a rollicking adventure story for some.
Here’s hoping that your 2008 will be a good one and that when you read your story at the end of the year, it will have been a happy one.
