Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, New Year’s Day edition!
I had no idea what kind of promises or resolutions to make for this New Year. I’m not keen on New Years resolutions this year, because, out of necessity, I’ve been working on myself constantly for the past two years, first to address anxiety and self-doubt, and then to accept and address a difficult situation this past year. Still, there is one promise I can make after my New Year’s eve.
I promise to find or create fun unexpected places and ways. Last night, my boyfriend and I had dinner at a simple local eatery that had no waiting line. It was good. We started early because this sort of eatery closed at 8 p.m. Then, we walked to a wine warehouse as it was next door.
We bought nothing! We may have been the only ones leaving empty-handed on New Year’s eve! We walked through, browsing and laughing as he does a great comedy schtick on almost every life situation, especially the $66 liquor in a skull shaped bottle. It was like walking through a museum and marveling at the wonders. Guess what? It was fun! We then watched “Curb Your Enthusiasm” at his place. No fireworks needed, his neighbors were setting some off in the street. Every neighborhood in this area seems to have some fireworks this time of year. 🙂
I promise to find or let myself enjoy fun in such things as observations, window-shopping, nature, and time with loved ones. As for hope, I hope to be successful at balancing work/home life, so I can keep up retirement saving and still have time for family, loved ones, and my canine friend, Bixby. I also hope the good changes and peaceful atmosphere in my home will continue.
Thank you for stopping by. I wish you a relaxing weekend and a Happy New Year!
