January 2nd always feels super BLAH after all the excitement of the holidays. There's nothing wrong with the day, except having to go back to the drudgery of our workaday lives. I commented to my friend Jo that it feels like a hangover.
He pointed out that on January 2nd, we do indeed suffer a hangover, an expectation/hype hangover. All that anticipation that's been built up over the month of December (or longer if the retail stores are any indication) disappears, often in a flurry of dreary weather and embarrassment about the overconsumption and overspending.
No more lights. No more decorations. No more treats.
No wonder everyone has the winter blahs.
This is when you curl up with a good story and a hot cup of hot chocolate or tea. Give yourself a little thrill to keep you going through the cold, dark months.
And if you think about it, March is a mere eight weeks away. Spring will be here before you know.
But if you need some warming up before then, may I suggest this picture of Chris Pine and Zachery Quinto?
