You know that period between Christmas and New Year? I find it confusing and it feels like life, more than ever, is in limbo. I never know what to do with myself. It seems too early to clean-up the Christmas mess and put the stockings and decorations away. By the last few weeks of every year, I’ve had it up to my eyeballs hearing about all challenges, predicaments and events of the last year. But, not quite ready to begin the new goals I have set for myself for the New Year. Now that January has arrived, I’m calling the old stuff passe.´
Some years the only thing I feel like doing is a jigsaw puzzle, which I get totally obsessed with, but at least it helps me to manage my feelings of not knowing what I am supposed to be doing with myself in the week that holds a juxtaposition between the old and the new.
Well, the New Year is here! I finished my puzzle just in time. I am fully ready to forge ahead into 2022 with whatever it may bring – new connections, open doors and new experiences. Hopefully all kinds of fulfilling things that add color and texture to my life and bring joy. Bring it on!
P.S. The painting in the photo above is the work of my sister, Jan. I love the palette of colors she used and it reminds me of the bright times we have spent together over the years with some of our other women friends.
