“What Are You?”
Can you imagine. It’s 2011 already. It seems like yesterday we were getting ready for the start of 2010. It’s the time of year when we start to wonder what every turn of the calendar will reveal to us. Will it be better than 2010? Will it be worse? Will there be celebration? Or mourning? This, of course, usually depends on if you are an optimist or a pessimist; a cup half full or a cup half empty kind of person.
However, I’ve found that even most pessimists tend to look at the start of a new calendar year with some degree of hope. This will be the year where things will change in their favour. And why not? This weekend we hang our shiny new calendars up on the wall with barely any events scribbled on them. It really is a blank slate. We can’t say that about the rest of the year because slowly it will begin to fill with ink. Meetings, doctors appointments, trips, parties, all sorts of things will begin to fill up the calendar, and it will probably happen a lot faster than we hope it will.
