My First Hub Of The Year

Updated on February 1, 2011

 My First Hub Of The Year

 

As i begin writing this Hub it has just turned 2011.  Yes that's right it has just turned eleven minutes past Eight in the evening.   Coincidentally, the year has also recently turned 2011 and thinking about it new years do get celebrated more than new minutes.                 I had an idea of something to write in this Hub but just couldn't think up a reasonable title so in the end i just went for something totally simple hence the reason it is called " My First Hub Of The Year".   If in future i write a Hub and it has a similar sort of nondescript title it will probably be the same reasoning that i can't come up with anything better.  So, for example if i put out Hubs called "I'm writing Something" or "I'm Sitting On A Seat Beside My Computer" then you can take it that there is a fair chance that i have agonized over other titles before opting for these.

Anyway, with that daft explanation over i can get on with my main part of this Hub, which is to talk about greeting the new year as a new friend not as an enemy and try to meet challenges that appear. In fact actually encourage challenges along the way.        I have, though started this year at a fast pace and have really hit the ground running.   I feel i will have to give that up, though because it is very difficult as well as very painful.     I am running along when i bend down to hit the ground with my fist.    People tend to look at me kind of strangely but i reckon they are just jealous because they haven't started the year in the same way.        It is very painful to use the keyboard at the moment to type all this in but at least i know i'm heading in the right direction.   Unless i've got it all wrong.

I've been thinking about having ambitions and dreams and realising that you have to have them and be able to make them come true for a better chance of happiness and success.           Last year i had a couple of dreams that came true and these were dreams that i had for a very long time.       The first one involved me walking around with no trousers on and everyone  pointing and laughing and the second had me falling from a very great height.     When i think about it now having these dreams coming true didn't make me any happier or more successful.      In conclusion, then , maybe it is just best to not hit the ground running and not to try and have your dreams come true.  So perhaps my New Years resolution can be try and avoid physical pain and being pointed and laughed at in the street!

      Hi Michael i just hit the ground running, ten laps around the football oval. I'm trying to get a bit fitter so i can keep up with the young fellows i have to play soccer against. I enjoyed reading your hub sometimes it's a good idea to tap away and see where it gets you and if you sprinkle a little humour in along the way you are on to a sure winner. With your fun attitude you will have a good year. Cheers

      I must say I cannot argue with the manner in which you have developed this new perspective on the new year. By the way, you could always just go as follows: My Next Hub: #2 LOL! WB

      Hee hee:) Nice break from the constant resolutions to diet, exercise and quit smoking. Though since the week is almost over I guess we won't have to hear about them much longer...

      Cheers!
