I used to enjoy reflecting on the year that was passing, but have not done that in a while. I used to like to lie in bed and think of all the things that happened to me during that day. But not anymore. I don’t know when I stopped reflecting and I don’t know why, but I become uncomfortable when I think back on what I did the past day, or week or month or year. So I won’t look back on 2009 even though several people whose blogs I follow did.
Nor will I look ahead to what 2010 might bring. I don’t want to tempt fate. I’ll just go along for the ride. I don’t have any big plans for the year and am not looking forward to anything important. I just want to live each day and enjoy them as they come and maybe document some of the days through writing or photographs. Not much different than before, but this time I’m making a conscious effort of living each day. That’s got to count for something.
Happy New Year.
