Happy New Year!

It’s a new year. New hope. New plans. New goals. New wishes.

I wish Covid would be done with us and would fade off into the sunset.

I wish people would be nice to one another and stop being stopped so reactive.

I wish our government would govern.

I wish I could renovate my old parts so they would do more for me instead of complaining when I try to do things. Back, I’m talking to you.

I’m thinking spring. I’m thinking I want to plant pretty things to grow and spread cheer. I’m wishing weeds away.

I read that red wine and cheese help fight cognitive decline. That’s a study that I’ll support! Yay for those of us who drink red wine and eat cheese!

There’s a lot of “I” in here. Seems a bit narcissistic, yet I can only speak for “I”.

I got my notice from Social Security about this year’s income yesterday – yes, I got a raise. Yes, they increased the cost of Medicare so that it absorbs most of that increase. Did the cost of living really only go up 1.3%? Why does it feel like it went up more when I go shopping?

As I weave my way through the days, I feel I have enough in this life. I think there are many of us that have enough, and too many that do not. I wish for you a new year with love, joy, and enough.

  1. Yes, I got my 1.3% increase too. How is it my food bill has doubled since March, yet our government believes we can live on a 1.3% increase?

      Probably has something to do with the fact that none of the people in our governing body will ever have to try to live on Social Security, so why should they care?



  2. Happy New Year Carol. Let’s hope it is kind to us, and we are all kinder to each other.

    We need to wish for a better world individually, Carol. You’re not narcissistic at all.

    I always wish for love, joy and enough each new year. Yes, COVID really needs to go away, but I fear it will be with us in some form for a long time. So, let’s add some dark chocolate to that red wine and cheese…..and maybe bump up that Vitamin C and D3! xoxoxo
