Hey! Wait for me, 2023!
While I was still singing Auld Lang Syne, January 2023 started its journey toward December!
Hey, wait up, I call out to the New Year! I didn’t figure out my goals, plans, and dreams, yet, for the next 12 months.
2023 isn’t listening.
2023 is almost stepping into February.
How did that happen?
This 2023 is a tricky fellow, I mumble.
I snatch up my creative self,
As my thoughts swivel to 2022’s unfinished “to do” list.
I reflect, 2022 had some rocky stretches.
Last year’s paths weren’t always flourishing!
I ran into some dead ends!
And my creative babies weren’t always beautiful.
2023 ignored my whining, deliberately advancing.
Finally, I shouted in frustration, “2023, you just keep going!”
Did I note a flicker of hesitation in the new year’s step? Was that a wink I detected in the twinkle of new year’s eye?
Aha! I get it!
I remember, now!
How many times must I relearn this lesson? It’s impossible to go forward if I’m always looking back!
2023 offers me a daily invitation:
So, with toes to the line and setting eyes forward,
Meet a DEAD END?
Don’t bother to despair.
Look for the DETOUR,
and keep moving forward.
Thanks, 2023, you’ve got the right idea.
Keep… moving… forward…
What exciting possibilities await, if I dare to accept 2023’s challenge?
So, Let’s Go!
Wishing you a delightfully adventurous journey through 2023!
One thought on “LET’S GO!”
2023….Seems like it started with 0-60 in seconds! Maybe it is my muffler that is dragging. Trying to get use to this livin’ alone life. I know I am never alone. The Lord never leaves me. Four years had passed after the Ed’s death before I had to actually face this part of being widowed. Being a little ADD my brain doesn’t shut down for very long. I thank the Lord every night that He gives me good sleep. I am grateful that thus far the winter months have been pretty mild. I have still been able to get out and about. I think of March 1st as my spring beginning! So in a little over a month and hopefully the robins will return and flower begin to peek through the soil. I am not trying to hurry the days, but rather enjoy this season of life, no matter what the temperature is outside. 💞
