Another year over

Another year over, a new one is soon to begin.

This is a traditional time to reflect over what the past year has brought to us and what we may want to do in the coming new year.

Whilst this may be traditional, i think its just a load of hogwash!

We should be reflecting on each day. What have we enjoyed, today? What are we grateful for, today?

Why wait till end of December to reflect on a whole year. Quite a lot to take in don’t you think? I much prefer bite sizes. A whole year is too much to chew off.

I believe we all need to be mindful. Live in the moment. Appreciate what we have.

You know, if we are reflective each day, the whole year will look after itself!

If you don’t believe me, do it. Start today. Or if you want to be traditional, start on 1st January or whatever date you want to set in the new year 2016. Do it. Do it now!

For we only have now. The present.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why its called the present. Kung Fu Panda

 

Kung Fu Panda quote

The answer is 42

Just by me saying the answer is 42 could only mean one thing to fans of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

42 is the answer to the meaning of life the universe’s and everything. If you don’t believe me, look what Google comes up with on this search…

The answer is 42

 

But if i said the answer is 42 to a runner, what is the race? They would say Marathon!

Yes, a marathon distance is a little over 42km.

Maybe when i run my first marathon on 17th April, 2015, i will find my answer to the life universes and everything?
