Another Christmas has come and gone. Seems like the season flew and my break from school is now over. *sigh* Yet, there’s something exciting about a new year beginning. No matter how many “new years” I go through, I think it will always have that feeling of possibility, of change, of difference. People are busy making resolutions and sticking to them. Me? I have no resolutions in particular. I have general goals that I want to keep my focus on this year. First, stop looking behind and ahead, instead look around and take in the moment. Second, don’t let the image in the mirror become more important than the condition of my heart. Third, make sure everyone I love, knows it. They seem simple in writing, but as always, in practice is the true test. Words are empty promises left unfulfilled unless someone decides to take action and breathe them into life. I hope I will be able to do just that.
So, although I just said I would stop looking behind, I’m reflecting on Christmas break this year. I didn’t mean that I could never look back, I just mean that instead of looking back regretfully or wishfully, that I appreciate the moments and lessons and enjoy what’s going on now. The past is the past.
Anyway, here are a few photos that sum up my short month (minus one week in Killington, Vermont) home.
