I’ll admit that I’m starting to feel the typical end-of-the-year reflections. What has changed, what has gotten better, what has gotten worse. All of the things I might put on a Christmas letter if I were inclined to write one. I’m also thinking about ways to recognize my blogging friends and also how to keep myself motivated and feeling renewed at the same time.
I was tweeting with someone last night and it struck me how I prefer Fridays over Saturdays. EVen though typically, Saturdays are the best because the whole day is free, I love Fridays because you have the anticipation of what is to come. You still have the whole weekend ahead of you.
It got me to thinking about the whole year, as someone else also mentioned. I guess I feel like most of the year is a Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday or yes, even Friday. It is the anticipation of great things. And then Christmas Day comes. It’s a culmination of the whole year for me. And just as with Saturdays, within a day, the joy and the anticipation is gone.
The week between Christmas and New Years’ is just about the weirdest time for me. It feels like limbo. We’re no longer looking forward to Christmas and yet we can’t start thinking about the next one.
Then January finally rolls around. And it feels like here we go again. We have to start it all over again.
But January is also a time for renewal. I’ve got my heart and eyes set on some new things already. And I’m starting to get excited about what 2012 will bring.
