One Year Ends…

Happy New Year everyone. I hope everyone has a wonderful night, celebrating with friends and/or family. Remember to drive carefully!

I once read somewhere (probably in Llewllyn’s Magickal Almanac) about a superstition that whatever you did on New Year’s Day would reflect what happened to you the rest of the year. For example, if you spent the day looking for a job, you would have trouble staying employed during the year, etc. In the years since, I’ve taken that superstition to heart. Not so much because I really believe it is true, but more because I think that the first day of the year does sort of set the tone for at least the next little while. So, I don’t do any housework beyond the basics, or do laundry, or anything else really strenuous. I usually just relax on New Year’s Day, watch a little TV, read, or maybe play a game. I don’t drink usually, so I never have to deal with a hangover (what a horrible way to start the year!).

This year, keeping in mind this superstition, I plan to spend tomorrow writing, reading, and working with my Tarot cards. I would like 2004 to be a year where I care more about my spirituality. I want to care a little less about what others think and care a little more about how I feel. I want to do things and study things that interest me, rather then because I feel like I should. I may sound a little selfish, but I don’t think I am. Sometimes you’ve got to do things for yourself instead of everyone else.

As for my resolutions, I haven’t really put them into words yet. And, I think I would rather set realistic goals rather then resolutions which tend to be forgotten by February.
