While packing away the holiday decorations, I started thinking about the how we usher in a new year – lots of hoping and resolution-making going on. We follow the same traditions each year, but the years don’t turn out the same. Some years sparkle like stars overhead, others smack you ‘til you see stars.
Some things we have no control over. All we can do is hope for the best. Only, we don’t always figure that out. We go and put all kinds of energy into trying to change those things anyway. We might as well be trying to teach a seal to tie shoelaces.
And then there are plenty of things we can change, but we get so caught up in hoping and wishing, we forget to actually do something.
The tricky part is to know the difference.
