The good thing about a New Year....

Fresh outlook, a heart filled with hope, new adventures, happy moments, love, and laughter and warm sunshine on your back. It's all very psychological and so I did a few personal things to make this turning of the calendar symbolic. First I took out last years garbage, literally. Bagged it up - cleaned up all the Christmas trinkets and packed them away and then visited the dumpster in my building with a bag that I flung in with great enthusiasm. Phew. That felt good. Then I decided it was the right thing to do to pay my outstanding bills before the crack of midnite on New Years Eve. So I did that and found myself with approximately $50.00 to start the New Year that was actually free and clear. Okay - so no problem. Feels good to know that I am still afloat. And I have a few gift cards in my wallet to provide that much needed treat on a dull day. Then on New Years day after sleeping in and being lazy, I went running in the rain. Pouring rain even! It was the therapeutic bathing of my spirit. Washed all of last years not so precious moments right off my back. Thanks for the rain, I remember to say.... Oh, and I bought a lovely bouquet of flowers New Years eve that make me feel like Spring is just around the corner. That is something we can do anytime we feel like it. Buy yourself some flowers. They always cheer up a place. So that's that. My bullet proof vest is still good enough to carry me through another year. A few holes in it - but that's just life anyways.
Advice to myself and anyone else who needs it? - buy yourself a pair of polka dot undies, spritz on a little perfume, turn up the music when your in the car and sing because nobody else can hear you anyways - and don't let anyone drag you down so low that you can't crack a smile. It's just not worth it. So, Sincerely my friends and those who I have yet to know as friends - Happy New Year. May it be "a good one".

Love J.

Good for you. What a GREAT beginning to a NEW YEAR Julie.
Trash belongs in the trash. Good things belong in your heart.
I'm beginning a fresh new blog myself. Been working on it all day. The old one needed some "fresh stuff" like your flowers.
Out my window, big huge snow flakes flying around. I did go out and catch one on my tongue just for you. It was fresh, clean and lovely.
Happy New Year BFF
Love you girlfriend.
Love Claudie
P.S. The boys are out today... I'm alone with all the fur, listening to what else? enjulie
