Flash Post 235!
Here’s the 1st post of 2017:
Button, it’s the first day of January, 2017. A year has come and gone. 2016 is history and we will not see her again. I feel vulnerable, lost and extremely depressed.
I feel the same way too. It’s like losing a loved one–no matter how nice or not-so-nice that living specimen was, you still feel the loss.
But life goes on. We try and correct ourselves of some of the bad traits we think we need to correct ourselves of and try to live a life that’s more humane, more tolerant, more giving, more genuine, more loving…
Any new year resolution this year?
Not really but I’ve told myself that I’ll handle each day as it comes, try to get through it as a thoughtful person and take stock at the end of that day if an act of mine or something I might have said saddened someone, angered someone or hurt someone and try and rectify myself.
That ‘s nice.
I don’t have a clue if I’ll succeed but I’m going to give it a try.
Did you wish your mother today?
Oh yes, I did. At the stroke of 12 this morning, when I heard the sound of firecrackers, I remembered how she would wake us up at the stroke of midnight to hear ships docked at the Diamond Harbour jetty sound their foghorns and she would announce to us that another year had just begun.
Happy new year.
Happy new year, Button.
