Welcome to NaBloPoMo January 2012

Happy New Year!  2012!What a way to enter the new year.

How was your new year?  I practically slept my way into mine.  I was sleeping on the couch for a while, and then I got woken up at midnight by my boyfriend.  Then I fell back asleep while he spent several hours doing sudoku puzzles.

Now, it is the new year which obviously means new beginnings.  Yay!  A new start to our fresh slate.  How will we fill it is yet to be determined.  Did anyone make new years resolutions last night?  I didn't but probably should have.  Number one would probably be to try exercising a little more.  Even just walking is great.  Should do that.

The best way to start the new year for families is introducing the new years baby into the family.  I'm sure last night was the fresh start for many new babies.  Welcome to the big wide world.

 Some of our young people are probably nursing a hangover this morning.  Visiting the porcelain goddess?  Perhaps.

Yes, the ball dropped.  Big deal.  To some of us, it is just another moment in time.  But, I'm not sure if I would want to be in the middle of a big hollering crowd of people at Times Square.  For some people that is probably very exciting, but I would rather be in the comforts of home and snacking.

I was going to do some sketching last night but sleep took over.  I haven't sketched in a while.  So maybe this month of NaBloPoMo, I can also force myself to NaBloPoMo in my sketchbook too.  That would be a big feat.

Well, the first of the year means a lot to all of us.  How do you want to start it off.  Today is a day to relax with family, friends and loved ones.  Although some of the stores are also open today.  People want to make money and some of us want to spend it.  Typical.

I've already written a new post to my Mommie Dearest blog and now am finding myself here.  After all, now it is January and my NaBloPoMo has begun.   This should be fun to see how far I can push my boundaries this month.

A whole new month of new beginnings of all kinds.  Exhilarating!  The thoughts are absolutely endless.  Where one goes when one writes is amazing.  We think to ourselves in this new beginning.  How am I going to come up with something daily for NaBloPoMo?  What if I can't think of anything?

We all know this isn't true.  Once we set the right side of our brains in motion, the colors and words are endless.  We do tend to lead a very colorful life, don't we?  I would rather have it filled with brilliance of colors than in black and white. 

My rainbow never ends and I can never find the pot of gold.  That's because my invisible gold has been with me along the way, whether I have seen it or not.  That's why nobody can find the end.  We're that Leprechaun.  Except, we don't possess their long beards. 

A New Year usually means that we have a whole year not to make the same mistakes again.  We don't want to repeat ourselves all over again.

And put it in the past.  We want a new year of happiness to go with it.  365 more days of pure bliss.  Lets just hope that the end of the world isn't coming this year.

So, set your mood and go with the flow of a new month of unknowns.  Things to be discovered about ourselves.  New joys, new events and new happiness to be revealed.
