While we’re having coffee, let’s ponder whether we’re certain or whether we’re doubtful about this and that. I’ve got a feeling this will be one of those thought-provoking chats. Perhaps even pointless.
We’ve been hoodwinked
is what I think
Birds chirping, singing
Fragile buds flowering
Trees no longer cowering
Mother nature in her glory
Sends a confusing story
Hapless souls in an icy path
Enduring winter’s frigid wrath
Other folks swathed in sun
Loving life and having fun
Mother nature perdures to amaze
Her persona obviously crazed
Let’s meet and greet at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe

Claire-It’s easy to dream all your plans, easy to imagine the great and the grand When the road is clear and the mission set, all we need is time then on the road, no regret But then the path gets diverted, the plot futile, the angle averted And what if you saw what was concealed, …thecoffeebeanbrain
Embarking on a new year can be exciting, yet we sometimes hesitate to jump in with both feet. So, where is the why to this? Well, whether we make resolutions or not, surely we set goals for ourselves. There are to-dos, bucket lists, things I should have done last year and things I want to do this year over and above the to-dos. And stuff in general, such as home improvements or self-improvements.
Back to my question about why we sometimes hesitate to take that first dive off a high dive is it can be overwhelming. So overwhelming that we procrastinate or deep six our idea(s) altogether. Long story short, the moral of my story can be summed up in a pertinent quote by John Bytheway, which brings me to my to-dos and that is to take a one step at a time approach to my goals.
“Inch by inch. life’s a cinch. Yard by yard, life’s hard” – John Bytheway
Whew, all that thinking about goals is tiring, so tiring I feel a celebration coming on. Yes, a celebration about nothing! Jan. 16th is Nothing Day. Let yourself take in what the day commemorates – nothing.
“Nothing Day has been commemorated since 1973. The day is literally about doing nothing at all, placing it in a similar vein to other such surreal non-occasions as an Un-Birthday or Buy Nothing Day. There is absolutely no purpose or intended structure for this pointless celebration.”
“As it is all about expending no effort on celebrating absolutely nothing, Nothing Day can also be about celebrating life itself. The only limits on how the day is spent are the imagination and bank balance of the participant.”*
