Is it the Worst or the Best of Times?
I love New Years!
For a few years when I was grieving about the unwanted things life forced on me, I wasn’t sure I liked New Years (actually I didn’t like anything during that time) … but as a general rule, I always love the start of a new year.
I’m an optimist (or as my hubs says at times, too much of an idealist) … but I know a new year could bring many exciting and wonderful things!
This year as I think about a new year starting I thought of this saying …
“I don’t know whether this is the best of times or the worst of times, but I assure you it’s the only time you’ve got.” – Art Buchwald
Depending if you’re an optimist or a pessimist … or who you listen to or what you read … you might have a strong opinion about whether this is the best of or worst of times.
You could be right … or you could be wrong. (yes, you … you could be wrong)
But one thing we can all be right about is the last thought in that saying … “it’s the only time you’ve got.”
So whether the world at large is going through a good or bad time … dream, plan, set goals and do your best to make 2011 a good year for yourself … and the people around you.
I’m curious … do you like New Years? And are you an optimist or pessimist?
Also … do you think you have a choice in what 2011 looks like for you? (this topic will be a blog post in the next week or so)If interested, you can subscribe to this blog by clicking on the RSS button beside my picture.
