I’m prone to being a little bit superstitious and a little bit theatrical. Sometimes I just can’t help myself in spite of an abundance of reasoning and rationale. Instinctively I am more of an intuitive beast than a logical one. So today after rather a ho-hum, dare I say ‘bad’ day, I am left wondering if this is what 2012 has in store for me. Should I just surrender now and throw myself under a rock for the next 365 days? Is it a sign, a symbol, a metaphor of what to expect for this revolution of the almighty sun?
Or perhaps I should just interpret today’s events in a paradigm of “the only way is up”?
The tiny tiny reasonable (and somewhat squeaky) voice within tells me not to interpret or place too much significance on the drama of today at all. It is after all just another day. My four and three year olds are not in on some universal conspiracy to spoil the entire year.
… but sometimes I just can’t help myself.
Do you sometime place too much significance on events? “Read” them as you would some finely crafted novel rather than just the randomness of everyday life.
