I’m not ashamed to admit that, on the first day of 2020, I spent the ENTIRE day watching Doctor Who episodes. I’ve been a fan way back when Tom Baker was Doctor Who, all the way up to the first female Doctor Who; Jody Whittaker. I never washed my face, brushed my teeth, or changed out of my pajamas, either. This was my way of enjoying the first day of 2020. Lazy? Absolutely. But so what? Everyone celebrates a new year in their own way.
My New Year’s resolution was to stop beating myself up for things I should have done but didn’t. Did my watching Doctor Who all day hurt anyone? Nope. Did the Crankee Yankee working on his train layouts down stairs bother anyone? Nope; not at all. I fact, we felt like this New Year’s Day was the best ever.
We decided to stop “shoulding” ourselves today, and it went so well we think we will just keep it up. Neither of us promised we would lose ten pounds or start a vegan diet or do handstands every morning this year. No, we did what we wanted to do, the cats got fed and watered on time and everyone was happy.
Now THAT is how to bring in the new year, according to us anyway.
