Happy 2022, everyone!
And with that first sentence, it looks like I am blogging again this year. I am sure this brings delight to some and disgust to many. But for my few fans, please keep in mind that I can’t commit to a rigorous posting schedule like I have in the past. We will just see how things work out and how often I am able to contribute to Don’t Blink. I will do my best.
Okay, let’s get down to business. Today can be a tough day for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are a grade school student or a mid-30s professional like me, the first day back to a school/work routine after the holiday season can be a little depressing. In fact, as I have mentioned before, the first couple months of a new year can at times feel melodramatic compared to the HalloweenGivingMas period that just passed.
Just know that if you find yourself a little down in the dumps that it is normal. With that said, you can neutralize some of those blue feelings by embracing this new year with as much enthusiasm as possible. I know it might be hard to summon that optimism but try to do your best. Set goals, do things for other people, and take steps to enter new positive habits into your daily routine. Even if you don’t inject the beginning of 2022 with change, take solace in the fact that after a few days of “back to the grind” that you will start to feel better if you did yourself missing the holiday season.
I am excited to blog again in 2022. I have several topics in mind to write about over the next couple weeks, including a look into what my family did over the past couple weeks. Again, have a memorable 2022 and hang in there! Don’t Blink.
