At times, the simplest jobs loom like Depressing Monsters. Especially after exhausting holidays, or bouts of sickness.
Some things can be put off, but others just have to be done, whether you feel like it or not. Better, if possible, to prepare one’s mind… maybe even build up some energy for the job. Soon, it will be “life as usual”—but maybe with a slightly better slant to it…
Time to think of New Year’s Resolutions, and list some goals for the next year. Do some homework that you’ve been putting off, it’ll make you feel good to get it done!
