As my esteemed guest contributor noted in our last post, I was (quite fortunately) working during much of the recent holiday period.
I apologize that I didn’t have an opportunity to share any profound Christmas ramblings. However, I may be redeeming myself with this (albeit a day or two late) New Year’s post.
At the 9 to 5 last week, just before calling it a day on New Year’s Eve, I glanced at the dish of hard candy I keep on my desk. I noticed there was, strangely, candy in just one half of the dish.
Yeah, you know where I’m going with this.
I thought about this on the way home. I got home, started drinking and forgot about it until today (Funny how Merlot will do that to a person!).
It’s the age-old question of whether a glass – or in this case, a dish – is half full or half empty.
If you will allow me to use candy as a metaphor for all the, shall we say, sweet things in our lives, then I can safely argue that half a dish of sweetness is better than no sweetness as all!
Perhaps this is something to think about as we look back in the rearview on the year past and through the windshield to the possibilities awaiting in the one ahead.
If you’re resolving to get more candy in your life – whatever that ‘candy’ is – I hope you don’t lose sight of all the sweetness that’s already in your dish.
Wow, I just gave myself a headache with all that deep thinking!
Happy Belated New Year!
