It is officially 2010. And how do I feel about this? Indifferent. There is always so much hype around New Year’s and it is almost depressing if you don’t find the perfect event to attend, the perfect boy to kiss, the perfect everything on the night of December 31. It is a holiday where it is worked up to be something different than it should be. Now, I’m not sure what it should be but it just doesn’t seem like it is looked at in the right perspective by most people.
I simply felt empty last night as we were counting down to 2010. It was just a very chill night with a few friends, but it just felt so odd. Something was missing. I think it might have been a combination of a lot of things like the hype of the holiday and being disappointed by it, not having my best friend JESS there when I was at her house (lol), not having a boy, etc.
I feel like I need to work on my happiness this year. I’m sure a lot of people should work on it, too. Its just the fact that we are in control of our feelings and we can be happy if we truly want to be. But, we always get caught up in the negatives and what we wish we could have or who we wish we could be with. We spend way too much time wishing and hoping, rather than taking actions to make ourselves happy. Am I right?
But, hey! We can do it! Let’s make this year an all-around positive one. Let’s help others when they need our help. Selfishness is out of the question for 2010 and beyond. The more we give, the more we get back. It’s a wonderful cause and effect. Also, let’s stop dwelling on “coulda.” “shoulda,” “woulda”s and focus on adjusting our outlooks on life and what is truly important. If everyone changes just a little bit by incorporating more optimism into our daily lives, this world can seriously change for the better. Come on let’s do it!
Thanks for reading and HAPPY NEW YEAR 😉
