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!
