2018 New Year’s Eve


The older you get, the faster time goes by.  That at least seems to be the case through my own observation. Typically, I’m the type to bemoan time’s transient nature & become emotionally left in the dust of the just missed train wondering, “What if?”

But on this New Year’s Eve, I stand calmly satisfied. I clearly remember where I was–in both my physical as well as emotional state, a year ago today. I remember each step along the way, from the cold winter mornings in February & the tricks I had to use to coax myself out of my warm bed to more recent actions like the holiday happy hour I attended last week. Overall, 2018 was a good, but not great year. Nothing wrong with that; there’ nothing wrong with good. There’s nothing I wish I had done differently to have made it better & nothing significant that I’ve missed out on. For me, it was a workmanlike year; I got out of bed, faced the cold, & upheld my obligations. And for the first time in a long time, I don’t feel as though I’ve been cheated out of time washed under the bridge. No. Twelve months didn’t seem like such a short lease this time around. It was just enough time to get a year’s worth of good living done.

But as for 2019, I have much higher expectations for you!

Happy New Year, everyone!
