It’s all perspective. Before the clock struck 12 last night I was determined to eat better, be better, feel better and just try and be better at everything. I woke up this morning and thought “How depressing!” This year I’m going to try and do the one thing my parents dreamed for me when I grew up: be happy. So that’s my resolution. Be happy with my eating, myself and my feelings.
The problem with this is, by just deciding to be happy, what will I strive for? Does deciding to be happy with everything make you complacent? Because I have goals still and I want to reach them but if I’m happy with my decisions all the time will I just ignore the things that are more difficult? Will I end up doing only the things that are easy and good in the short term? Because those miniature moments of happiness makes me happy. Right?
Well, that’s even more depressing and I think unrealistic. It’s like I’m working this all out out loud. Having goals and working towards them, working hard and even failing, but being okay with that, that’s being happy. (?)
But will I find the time for all the things I want to do when Letterkenny is calling my name??
Life is hard!
My parents wanted the one thing in life that is the hardest to achieve.
A lot like other years, since our family grew, New Years Eve plans have changed a bit. We’re not drinking and partying until 5 in the morning (not that I ever really did that). This year we’re thinking of taking the kids up to the hill, cooking hotdogs at the bottom of mighty moose, do some night skiing and sledding, watching the fireworks at 9 and then head home to put the kids to bed. How times have changed! I’m kind of looking forward to it, though. An easy and fun time with the kids and a nice quiet evening with Robo. Let’s see if this pans out the way I think or perhaps my husband will be out partying like it’s 2008, not unlikely, and I’ll have a nice quiet evening with my TV. I’ve started watching Letterkenny, a show set in a small Ontario town, which I didn’t think would grab me the way it is and that’s all I want to watch now. Bringing in the new year with Wayne, Daryl and Dan!
Want to go out for New Years in Fernie? Check out our Events and Shows page for all the details we’ve been able to collect. Sounds like most bars are selling $35 tickets, sold in advance, but there are a few cheaper options.
