600

I was going to make this a “Today’s Thoughts” posting until I looked at how many postings I have done and I am officially at 600!!

I’m not quite sure what to say about that. Seems like an impressive number to me. Six hundred writings, ramblings, ideas, expressions and thoughts. Six hundred postings since May 2009. Six hundred days of expressing my opinion.

Not that expressing my opinion has been limited to only 600 days. Hardly. I have been pretty opinionated my whole life. Mostly, I think, due to how much my dad encouraged me and my brothers and sister to express our opinions. He didn’t abide by the “children should be seen and not heard” adage. He was a firm believer in letting his kids participate in conversations. So we learned early on how to carry on a conversation and to participate fully in discussions.

That said, it still seems like 600 is a large number of blog postings. Then again, I thought 50 was impressive….since I wrote about it at the time: http://www.julianemarie.com/?p=261

I do find it interesting that my 600 posting comes on January 1, 2013. Which I was going to write about. My thoughts on New Year’s Day 2013. And, since I still have those thoughts, I shall write them despite the 600 posting acknowledgement.

Today’s Thoughts (January 1, 2013):

Here are a few of my thoughts on this, the first day of the new year:

– We make WAY too big of a deal about New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. After all, we are just switching from one year to the next. It is simply a day change the same as any other day change except we are also changing the year as well. Granted it is nice to have an additional holiday in the year but I think we should make a bigger deal about Easter and less of a big deal about New Years.

– That said, I was in bed early last night and going asleep by 10:30. I thought about maybe staying up to acknowledge the new year as the clock changed from 11:59 pm to 12:00 am but I decided to just go to sleep. After all, it will happen whether I am awake to acknowledge it or not. And I was tired.

– I saw the Rose Parade today. I hadn’t seen it since I was a kid but my friend likes to watch it and it is her house and I thought it would be fun to see. I was impressed. Not only with the bands, floats and huge number of flowers but also with the creativity that went into each and every element. People really put thought into their part of the parade and it showed. Quite a beautiful parade!

– I have decided not to do any resolutions this year. Instead I am just going to continue on with getting healthy and getting my life back in order. Since I was working on that in 2012 and am not done yet, I shall just continue forth into 2013.

I think that is it for now. Tomorrow is another day and there will be more time to express myself in blog posting #601.

I hope everyone had a pleasant New Year’s Eve and are having an equally pleasant New Year’s Day! Health, happiness and God’s blessings for everyone this coming year!!
