My post-Christmas blues are continuing. It’s not that I’m disappointed at the prospect of eating turkey for the next three weeks, it’s more that I can’t face the hassle of having to take down all he decorations we put up. Somehow putting them up has an element of excitement to it, but taking them down is just acknowledging that the excitement is over and it’s time for normal life to resume. School restarts. Everyone goes back to work and there is much less overeating than during the festive season. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these dogs that wants to take the words of the song ‘I wish it could be Christmas every day’ literally. Although in the sense of people being more generous and taking time out to think of those less fortunate than themselves, it would of course be a good thing. I just don’t like the flat feeling that comes after all the excitement. That does give me a bit of an idea for my objective for next year though. I think I’m going to take on board the thought of ‘random acts of kindness’. It means doing little things for people around you, both ones you know and complete strangers, just because if everyone did that it would be a much nicer world to live in. Maybe I should talk to the others and see if I can convince them to join in the campaign. If all the readers of this blog undertook during 2011 to do random acts of kindness, just think what a difference we could make to the world. I’d like you all to think about it and if you do something send me an email and I will tell everyone else the lovely things that are being done. I won’t use your names, just the fact that someone has done something. Maybe through the year we could all spread a little happiness.
