I admit it. Just a few weeks into 2011, and I already have the January Blahs. I started the new year with such great hope and excitement. How could I be tired of it so soon?
To be honest, this happens to me every year. After the rush of the holidays, the weeks following suddenly seem so dull. Add to that the cold, snowy weather, and I start feeling blue.
Well, lucky for me, I'm not one to wallow in self-pity for long. My Dad always taught me to pull up my boot straps and soldier on when I started feeling down. So, that's what I am doing.
I have already begun connecting with friends and making plans to have some fun in my off time. This time of year you have to work a little harder to make life interesting, but don't worry, only 61 days until spring arrives, renewing that hope and excitement all over again!!!!
