Today is the third day of this new year. It is damp and a bit dreary here in the low country. The rain has come several times today and it is a mixture of wanting to crawl into bed and stay there or just get busy.
I have accomplished some things today. I have my dining room returned to normal. Not a hint of last weeks decorations in sight. It is refreshing to see it back to its plain normal setting. My mantle in the living room is boasting a different set of accessories, and I am not certain it is going to stay that way.
I want a change. Nothing major, just rearranging some things. I think this is what is happening in my life now. I have spent the past couple days trying to get excited about this new year. It is like I am on the edge of wonderful pool. It looks inviting and fun, but for some reason, I am running up to the edge about to jump and then I stop.
I know change is coming this year. I knew it was coming at the end of last year. I was thinking of it and preparing, and holding off to the new year. So, now it is here. I guess it came sooner than I wanted. But, here it is and I am staring into the next few weeks and getting myself pumped up for the next season of our lives.
In another month I will reread this post and smile. I will reconsider what this time was like and laugh at my hesitancy. Change is always like this. You see it coming and you balk. But, on I go. I will once more back up, look ahead and start to run. Maybe soon I won’t stop at the edge but go for a big cannonball jump into the pool of the unknown.
Thanks for stopping by. DAF
