Re: Happy New Year

I posted this elsewheres, and I guess I should post it here too:

I know tonight a lot of you are going to want to drink and celebrate and do this and do that, and who knows what else. I say, instead, why not do something moral, something wholesome, something meaningful? Something that will stick in your memory forever, as that one special moment. Instead of being stupid and silly and drunk, why not do this: Around midnight, make some hot chocolate. Make it really hot, so that it has to cool down for a bit. Leave it sit there, and put on your shoes and a coat. Go outside. Before you step foot in the snow, take a good look at it. Then open the door, and feel the rush of warm air turning into cold. Step outside, hear the crunch as your feet push through the snow. Take the time to look at your breath, turned to fog in the coldness of the night. Look around, take in your winter wonderland. Look at the beauty of the snow, the streetlights shining peacefully down upon the frozen scene. Now look up at the stars, see them shining brightly. If the moon is up, take a look at that too. Take a deep breath, and allow yourself a smile. Then, say a silent thank you that you're alive, that you're well. Say thank you for all the good things that have happened this year. Forget the bad things, and focus on the good ones, the ones that make you smile, that make you happy. Gather those memories, as you watch the stars. Then take another look around, notice the little things. Like how the snow piles up just a little higher against walls. Or the way the light of street lamps shine on the snow. Or random footprints where people have walked past. Then, once you're done, go back inside. Sit down in your bed, and drink your hot chocolate. Enjoy every sip of it. Let the chocolatey and sugary goodness fill you with warmth and and a sense of contentedness with the world. Then, put your cup away, and go to bed. After all, it's now after midnight and how else should you start off the new year, than with a good night's sleep, so that in the morning you're just as refreshed, alert, awake, and renewed as the new year itself is.

Isn't that a lot better than some silly stupid drunken idiot's idea of "celebrating"?

Re: Happy New Year

Well Miba, you'd be proud (since New Year has already happened in Australia) we went out with friends had a BBQ on the foreshore to watch the fireworks and I even had hot chocolate! Strange since it's summer in Australia... big_smile

Happy New Year!

Re: Happy New Year

I wholeheartedly agree with you Miba.  I did have hot cocoa earlier, but I didn't have snow.  Florida and all. 

Happy New Year everyone.  Cheers.

That is such a funky post big_smile

I do not drink anymore so I was able to appreciate the New Year sober (I really do not like being drunk any more and it is not a good idea when you are solely responsible for 3 young children as Devil Boy was away for the New Year)

Edited to add: You are right Terra.

Huge (hugs) to those who are alone at this time of year.

Miba, would you mind if I quoted what you have said on the other forum that I type on as I think they would like it big_smile

Happy New Year, vode! Oya! Here's to hoping for an awesome 2009!

Re: Happy New Year

Meh, I'm almost 21. I'd rather be smashed inside with a bunch of friends (that I don't have...) and having a great time, then stand outside in the cold snow (which we don't have in the valley) and appreciate life. I...don't rather like a lot of things happening to me in my life. So I'm thankful the other 364 days of the year. I'd rather just party this one night of the year. Which I NEVER even get to do anyways. I'm young, I have a whole life ahead of me. I want to go out and have a bunch of fun, instead of sit at home with people who can't even stand eachother for 5 seconds and not be able to have fun because of it. =/

Re: Happy New Year

Happy New Years guys.  Actually got to get away from Louisiana and I'm visiting in-laws in Colorado.  It's good to be back this way.  I miss the cold and snow.  Not going to like going back to swampy Louisiana next week.

Hope everyone is well and that you have a great holiday.

I hate a lot of my life, work is hell and a lot of other things go wrong. But I know drinking will just make it worse. And when you're old you'll look back on it and regret it.
