Today is the first day of 2017. In my neck of the woods, it’s been a dreary day- foggy at times, grey all day. Some rain. It’s been a day for staying in the house. Watching TV and movies. I started watching some of Season 1 of The Blacklist. I read a good bit of The Sleeping Beauty Killer. I’ve cuddled with my cats. I’ve rested. I’ve took the day for rest for my mind, body and soul. I’ve worn my glasses and had my hair pulled up into a “messy hair, don’t care” bun and my comfy slippers have not left my feet today.
It’s not the day that I imagined for the first day of 2017. I wanted there to be sunshine. To have an important feel of the day- waking up and feeling all Superwoman/Wonder Woman-ish. To proudly declare that 2017 is THE YEAR. The year for whatever. The year for love. The year for being healthy. The year for figuring out things I want to do in life. The year for travel. The year for all my dreams- even the ones I’m too afraid to say out loud to happen.
I’m not making resolutions this year. I’m not anti-resolutions, but I feel this year- I’m going to wing it. I know some things that I need to work on and some things that I want to do. The only thing close to a resolution that I aim to do is to write my Dear Universe letter- the one where I talk about all the things that I am open to in life.
Today may have not gone like I had imagined or hoped and the year may not have started off with the bang like I had thought it would, but I realized that I need days like today. Quiet sometimes gets confused with lazy and just because I did not Wonder Woman myself through the day does not mean anything. It just means that I took a day to recharge my batteries. To rest. To fill my soul with things that make me happy. And to prepare myself for 2017.
May 2017 be all that you need, want and desire. And may there be many books for you to read.
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
