I won’t bullshit y’all: I’m feeling ho-hum about the new year. Like everyone else, I have my high hopes and wish everyone the very best in 2012 and beyond. But in other respects, I see this as just another day, with all the usual struggles.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
I like my life well enough. I’m certainly blessed well beyond what I probably deserve.
I’m just not feeling the euphoria I’ve felt at New Years past.
That’s probably just as well, since the euphoria never lasts. But neither does the let-down that follows.
Meet the new year. Same as the old year. Steady as she goes.
