Here I stand in the kitchen and I’m writing with my laptop on the counter and cooking pancakes all at the same time. So I’m already breaking one resolution – namely to focus on the task at hand, whatever that might be. And I’ll likely burn a pancake.
Wait, you know what? I’ve decided right here and now. Forget resolutions. I never keep them anyway. Hang on. Time to flip.
The pancake I mean. Not that I’m going to flip. Time to flip the pancake. Which I did.
But then I have flipped out a few times in the last couple of weeks too though, so there’s that.
I’m changing my antidepressant meds from one to another in the hopes that it will help me in my endeavors to be less fat. But in the meantime I have gone from happy, to weepy, to crazed bitch, to happy over and over in the last couple of weeks while everything levels itself back out. Fun times, ya’ll. Fun times. And Merry Christmas to you as well, good sir.
And whoops. Almost burnt a pancake.
So here we are again at the beginning of a new year…well, day 2 of the beginning of a…whatever.
Here we are at day 2 of the beginning of a new year and it’s time for a fresh start. All the mistakes and shortcomings from last year are dead and gone and I have a whole new year’s worth screw ups ahead of me. Look, I’m just trying to be real.
It’s not all bad though. There’s been some really good things that have happened over the course of the last year. They haven’t all looked like good things at the time they were happening, but in looking back I can see light peeking through the cracks of the hard parts where God was doing a thing. I don’t know what it was in some cases, but it was something. I’m relearning that God doesn’t just sit around killing time. (And I say “relearning” because really I knew that already…I guess I just forgot.) Yes, God is in the business of getting stuff done. And it’s always good in the end even if it hurts like hell in the middle.
So here’s to new beginnings or fresh starts or to waking up to a new year but feeling the same as you did yesterday…or two days ago as it were…and just trying to figure out where your other sock is and making sure you don’t forget to pick up any of your kids.
God’s here friends…with you and with me.
