I miss the past New Year’s Eve tradition where my family and I would go out for dinner then catch fireworks to usher in the New Year. Since I have been quietly ushering in the New Year from home for about two years, I guess I am used to it.
This time round was special in its own way despite spending it home. One of my gurls came over to spend the last few hours with me. We watched Michael Jackson’s This Is It then a bit of Rihanna’s Good Girl Gone bad concert. I wasn’t by my lonesome.
How about that, a New freaking Year!! Prior to New Year’s eve, me and my gurls talked quite a lot and I kept asking if they were anxiously anticipating the New Year and all of them gave a resounding NO! I guess we are officially grown up now that we don’t get giddy with excitement over the arrival of a new year. We are past the stage where we expect monumental changes to happen in our lives!
There’s one or two things I would love to happen (if at all they do) this year so I wouldn’t call them resolutions as such.
It would be nice to become financially independent. Yes! I am putting it all out there for God to work his magic while I do what I can too.
I’ve been told on more than one occasion the previous year to find a MAN! LOL. Is this a priority?! I don’t know. Basing on the fact that the last time I were in a tentative relationship was at University, I guess there is need for concern and it isn’t on my side. I’ve been single for too long anyway. Being in the comfort that I am currently enjoying and luxuriating in, it’s going to be hard. However thrilling the chase and flirting are, I hate putting myself out there! I guess I should use this opportunity to sharpen my extremely rusty and previously retired flirtation skills.
Seeing as I've put everything out there, I’d like to wish each and everyone of you all a Happy 2013. May God give you good health, Happiness and all that you ask. To all my friends and family, may the bonds of our friendship strengthen and tighten with each passing year. Amen!
Now that the year is a new and filled with prospects, let’s get to this idea…'start 2013 off with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. On new years eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year.'
