2012...or life lessons where you least expect them

All day yesterday I was composing a post in my head. A typically negative post about how my MIL ruined yet another holiday and how anxious and depressed I was feeling and... Around 5pm I finally got out of the house  to take the dog for a long walk in the weirdly warm and humid evening.  I was having all the usual thoughts and emotions swirling in my head, feeding off each other and becoming heavier and more unbearable. Suddenly I looked up and saw the rolling display on top of one of the city's tall buildings.

"Little things waste a lot of energy"

Yes, it was a PSA from the electric company about unplugging your appliances and flipping off your lights but I'll take it as a sign from the universe, setting me on the right track for the new year.

Happy New Year to all of you! Stay tuned for a series of posts about my resolutions/goals/priorities/intentions or whatever it is you want to call them!


  1. If you figure out how to not let that happen, can you please share your secret with me? My life would be so much better if I could just let things go. Sadly, oftentimes I cannot. (This is part of the reason I blog -- it seems to help.)

    Looking forward to hearing about your resolutions!

  2. I love it. A more relevant message than any horoscope or fortune cookie would have had for you!
