New Year’s Day

Posted by terrepruitt on January 1, 2011

So how was your New Year’s Day?  Did you get to a Nia class?  Do you think that the first day of the New Year dictates how the year will go for you?  I was thinking about that today when I started to make something to eat.  I went into our closet that we use as a pantry — we had ants.  They were after a particular box of cereal.  The entire closet had to be emptied out so that we could find out where they were coming from.  I believe we live on an ant hill because every time it rains they get washed up.  Anyway, I didn’t want to spend my entire New Year’s Day cleaning up after ants.  I have other household chores that need to be done, but I am trying to rest my toe.  So I thought for a moment, “Great.  If this is any indication of how the year is going to go — oh my!”  But then, my hubby jumped in to help.

He emptied the entire closet . . . . which was awesome because as you can imagine emptying a closet is just a lot of walking back and forth.  As silly as it may sound (and it sounds pretty silly) I thought that it was pretty great that we had this project to do together.  He seemed pretty happy to be helping and I was so glad to have the help.

So, I am thinking of two ideas:

The first day of the year is not really an indication of how the year is going to go.  It is just a day and if was covered in ants, oh well, move on and make it a great year.

OR, the first day is an indication of how the year is going to go and spending the day working on a project – no matter that it wasn’t a fun one we would have chosen – with my hubby gives me an idea of what a great year this is going to be.  I’ll get projects done and I’ll be with my hubby.

That leaves me with questions for you:

How was your New Year’s Day?

Do you think that the first day of the year might serve as a hint into how the year will go?

How is your year going to go?

NOTE:  Please remember my Nia Class in Los Gatos has a new start time beginning Friday, January, 7, 2011 – the class is now at 10:30 am.
