Bugger the Bacardi Breezers, tonight we’ll be blowing bubbles, burning incense and planning the BEST 2014 we could wish for

daisychains  It’s the end of yet another year that has been full of highlights and lowlights but what have we really learnt?  I’ve decided this year if I don’t take some time to work out some of the answers to the questions then the tough stuff has been in vein and the great stuff taken for granted. So with this in mind, I’ve rallied a little group of friends tonight to do something that if we’d done a few hundreds of years ago could easily have had us being strung up in a local town square or even burnt at the stake like a couple of marshmallows on a camp fire. The deal is that we all meet at my place; I pack a little rucksack full of ceremonial stuff like incense, crystals, candles and something to sit on so the burrs don’t prickle our bums and bugger our Zen. I then don the girls and myself with little fake daisy wreaths or something from the $2 shop that’s trying to masquerade as one. We do not use real ones obviously because that would mean we’ve already killed one of mother’s creatures so she may not listen to our wishes because she really hates our guts. While others in the park will no doubt be getting stuck into their NYE Wild Turkey and coke, a six pack of XXXX and other such brands that make me want to projectile vomit even at the thought, we’ll be getting stuck into our little hand written notes that are going to change our worlds…and maybe yours too if you happen to get a mention on any of them.  And yes it’s too late for bribes. The girls have been asked to write on separate lists the following to bring to the gathering.

  1. The lessons we’ve learnt from people and events that occurred in 2013. Note this is not a space to ferociously bag all the people who got on your nerves or the fact you look better in a slim fit pair of jeans rather than a low slung hipster type style.
  2. The things you are grateful for that came in 2013.  Again note that while there may be a cross over slightly with the list above, this is also not a place to mention anything you got on sale for a great price or that you were smart enough to Google a certain footballer who you found out was married two months before you met him, hence you have now deleted his number. Though understandably, that did help.
  3. 3.    Write down your list of personal and career goals you’d like to show up for you in 2014.

Now it’s not about getting all kumbaya on each other, it’s about taking just an hour to make sure we have a plan of attack, for want of a slightly softer word, going into 2014. None of the girls joining me tonight even know each other either, which is pretty brave and makes it an even more special event because we’re all their to support each other to make sure we don’t wake up groaning into yet another New Year, with the first achievement of the year being finding our car keys in order to get to the nearest drive through Macca’s to get us back on track. It’s too easy to drag all your unnecessary baggage from one year into the next, like you’re heading off on a National Lampoon holiday with Chevy Chase.  A new adventure is nice, but losing your gear from the roof rack can wear thin. But as we’ve got older, you realise being wiser is definitely not just a given, through age, you have to make time and make a plan to ensure you get there. I am not saying that by midnight we’re all going to holier than thou or even Cinderella, but the one thing we do know, is that this year, we will not be waking up in 2014 discovering we’ve already lost our favourite shoe.
