These days my mind drifts back and forth between color and black & white images. January is the new beginning to the new year, new resolutions, new commitments, recommitting to a new resolve and a change in life perhaps.
The lens that I look through is a little different this January. I know that new beginnings are just around the corner but to be honest I have mentally hibernated a little bit. So January for me feels like I am rounding turn three and entering turn four in a race. Typically in this race November should be turn three, December turn four, with the finish line January 1st. With all thats going on am I the only one who feels this way? I hope so. It seems like the finish line is similar to the end of a rainbow. The closer I get, the further it seems.
Rounding the fourth turn isn’t necessarily about the finish line or completing the race. For me it is about an accomplishment and the opportunity for new beginnings. While it may seem like we are rounding turn three in January, we are not.
