We are in the second week of the year 2022. This year going to be filled with amazing adventures.
I hear so many people saying they are hoping 2022 is better than the last two years. I will not sugarcoat it. 2022 has the makings of another year of crazy. Especially if you keep thinking that everything is going to change simply because a glass-covered ball drops down into a drunken crowd at midnight on December 31st.
You may wonder why I think it is going to be an amazing year. Well keep reading and I will tell you.
The main reason it is going to be great is we have the power to choose. We can choose to abstain from activities that bring in worry, confusion, or anger.
If watching the news gets you down, chose not to watch it for a few days. Before Christmas, there were reports of the Great Cream Cheese shortage. It was mostly on the East coast but even here in Minnesota different parts of the Twin Cities, certain brands were hard to find. People began hoarding cream cheese. I did find in one store filled with a store-brand cream cheese. A woman, a cream cheese snob, couldn’t understand I wasn’t ready to join her in a riot, which was to pelt the grocer with naked bagels as a form of protest. She couldn’t believe I wasn’t upset that I couldn’t get the name brand.
Social media I stay away. I am sorry for all the belated birthday wishes because I only go on once a week. It is all I can stomach. There has been a sharp rise in urban legend posts. You have seen these posts. They appear to be a shared link to an official website but the content is so off the wall you realize you gave up 5 minutes of your life reading this baloney. You don’t dare mention it to the person that posted it. They will defend it no matter what. People will join in saying it works for them. Some will agree that the information is wrong but accuse you of having a closed mind. The only outcome is you are going to be a horrible person. I say let them believe putting newborn kitty fur up their nose will keep them safe from COVID. It’s called culling the herd.
To get to the point of this blog posting, I’ve decided to share my New Year’s
Laugh every day.
Take a deep breath when getting negative emotions.
Tell my family I love them.
Do something spontaneous at least once a week. For me, that could be cleaning out the refrigerator.
Have a good cry when needed. Yes, there will be bad days. Bad days make good days fantastic days.
Do something silly.
Learn something new.
Call people more. Less texting.
Be thankful for the good, the bad, and the crazy.
Happy New Year to everyone.
