Hey, it’s 2011! I’ve never been here before, never stepped over the threshold, never even had a taster. And now here it is, all shiny and brand new. I never make New Years resolutions – they seem to fizzle and fade away before the first few days are over. But it is a New Year with new opportunities, new aims, new chances to get things right. Unfortunately it’s still the same old me; same old ambitions, hampered by the same old hang ups, and the same old things cluttering up my head. Can a New Year really mean a new start?
Over the Christmas and New Year break I made time to de-clutter my office, tidy things away, and throw out the rubbish. Maybe I can de-clutter my head in the same way, and get it organised. I need to make time to nurture the good bits, be ruthless with the rubbish and throw it out, and file away the things I don’t need at the moment, but that may be vital in the future. I really don’t think it’s quite that easy, but at least I can have a go. I can begin the New Year the way I want it to continue, and hopefully this year it’ll go on for more than the first couple of weeks.
