Happy New Day!! 2016-01-01

Jan1January 1, _____ (fill in the blank) Does it matter that this is the first day of the new year? It’s fun to make promises and set goals, but I really don’t know why we have accepted procrastinating on our life until one magical day on the calendar when we party until the cows come home, light up the world with fireworks and large screens of every size and color flashing and streaming images at us, tipsy people tipping the bottle, kissing like there’s no tomorrow, hugging people we barely know, wearing sparkly clothes, silly eyewear, dancing, and celebrating, and hooting, and hollering, and making complete unapologetic fools of ourselves with often trumped up and forced merriment, making fun of those who make silly resolutions like I vow not to lose weight or I won’t wear metal pants in a lightning storm. Yuk, yuk, yuk.  Then there’s the serious resolutions made every year so much so that all the advertising and sales are geared toward the annual favorite — losing weight. There’s diet programs, diet food mail order, home gym equipment sales, gym membership deals, everything of the promise to help us with our procrastinating life. If this stuff really really worked, we wouldn’t have to en masse make the same promises and resolves every single year. How about the spending more time with your family or seeing more of your friends or whatever standard ‘this sounds good’ resolution people think in their head will play in Peoria. It’s something they can write on a calendar or put on a goal list or any number of ways of trying to convince themselves that this is the day, this is the time, this is the pursuit of happiness.  January 1 here we come! We have picked the most solemn, less celebratory time of the year to begin our most life-changing promises to ourselves and others. We have literally set ourselves up as a human race to fail miserably on a grand scale. Why do we pump ourselves up for that one day every year, then let ourselves down shortly after. Many wake up on New Year’s morning after an eve of partying to a headache where you think your cranium was the bass drum in a marching band, the cat surely was sleeping close to your open and slobbering mouth, your pajamas are way too warm and disheveled. “Please kids go back to bed. What? It’s 11:00 am?” Now you’re trying to fix food on a stomach that’s turning over like the Mississippi River in Spring. Yah, this is the perfect time to spend more time with family, invite over some friends, start eating celery and carrots.  If I were January 1 I would feel enormous pressure to be all I could be; but there’s very limited success going on here. My theory would be to enjoy the New Year, forget about the attention to that one day being the day to which all successive days are measured and simply adopt this one true and profound mantra that rises to truth on every single date of the calendar. “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” Happy New Day, everyone! … Sandy
