2014 is Here. Now What?

It's funny how short-lived a big celebration like Christmas can be. In an instant, all the rush of the previous weeks, the frantic searches for the perfect present, the carols, the get-togethers, the wishes are gone. And what's left of all that?
New Year's Eve celebration also came and went. Today is January 2nd, 2014. Yes, 2014. And I'm feeling like I have a huge blank page in front of me, but I don't have the slightest idea what I'm going to write. And right now this is overwhelming. I hope it gets better as time goes by.
I feel a little confused, as it usually happens after a holiday -- I lose track of the days. Is it Thursday or Monday? Things are slow because most people are still on vacation, and this adds to my feeling bored.
Bored. I usually get irritated at people who announce "I'm bored" on their Facebook walls -- there are just so many thing to do in this world. But now, surprisingly, it is me who feels bored. Am I really bored? Perhaps I'm afraid, tired, thirsty, hungry, and in need of some more sleep.
But I won't let myself be trapped by this... melancholy. 2014 is a brand new year, and I'm determined to make it a great one. 2013 was a tough year, but it was also full of lessons that I've learned well. And these are great tools to enjoy 2014.
Life's too short to spend it in sad thoughts, so let's move on and start living and enjoying a happy 2014!

    You're still approving each and every comment!!! I was hoping my latest post (http://gringosuelto.wordpress.com/2013/12/28/yes-comment-please/) might have inspired you to relax a smidgen.

    Give it a try! Change your settings to at least allow commenters who have been approved once to be visible immediately. You might get more comments and debate going.

  5. I'm originally from San Francisco, so I spend every Christmas here. Right now I'm in my brother's house, taking care of his dogs.

  6. P.S. I'm thrilled not to be in Boston, where there's ~25 cm of snow on the ground, and a forecast for a low tonight of -18 C.

    Meanwhile, here it's sunny and +18 C.

  7. Kim, I guess you entered the blog before I had changed the settings. : ) And no wonder you're enjoying such nice weather in SF. Today we had a beautifully sunny Saturday in Monterrey, with the temperature reaching 28 C (82.4 F). Seems we'll have a similar weather tomorrow but they're announcing 1 or 2 C (33-35 F) for Monday and Tuesday. These crazy variations are very common here, but we never get snow and we hardly ever see temperatures below 0 (32 F).
