Where will I be one year from today, January 1st of next year? What experiences will I have had in 2012? How will I feel about them? Who will my friends be? What will I look like? Who did I spend New Years Eve with? What are my relationships like with my highschool friends, Caroline and Amy and Bobby and Allan and Colleen and everyone else that matters to me now?
The “new year” seems very mundane and ordinary when you continue to think in terms of one day at a time. But when you think in terms of before and after, today being before, and one year from today being after, with all that unpredictable living in between, it’s really quite exciting. Things are going to be really different 365 days from now. Today is day one.
