It’s the end of the first week of January—so much for one resolution I made—to be more timely with my posts …
Forgive me, as we revise our goals for the year, after the champagne has worn off and we come face-to-face with reality. How about if I pledge to post before the 10th of the month? 😉
More than any other time of the year, January holds the unique distinction of personal power to seriously change our lives. In this month, we’re conditioned to review the past and consider the future—and dive into the New Year accordingly.
When it comes down to it, it’s all about ATT-i-tude! What you do from this day forward is a result of your ATT-i-tude about what went before and what awaits you. Love it—live it.
39 Years Ago this Month ~ January 1978
We’re still movin’ an’ groovin’ to December’s leftover Holiday mojo. In fact, as Saturday Night Fever gains cult status, we keep its soundtrack at the top of the radio music charts ‘til sum—sum—summertime!
Notable notes 39 Years Ago this Month: The Great Blizzard of 1978 pounded the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes regions. Let’s not have a repeat.
And, while “Stayin’ Alive” had staying power at #3 on San Diego’s B-100 radio survey at month’s end, it was a two-fer that showed ATT-i-tude at the top of the chart—Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions”! Great way to start the year—let’s do it again!
For 39ers who Follow the Stars …
It’s good that earthy Capricorns take us into the New Year ( Dec 22-Jan 19; like 39AHC birthday gal, Erin, left). Their stable, determined ways help us focus after we’ve picked up the party plates.
Have a Capricorn friend? Good person to discuss your future with—they’ll support you, while playing Devil’s Advocate to help you avoid the coming year’s pitfalls.
When we slide into the mid-month post-Holiday doldrums, luckily, airy Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) is there to brighten up the horizon. Intellectually stimulating, with a flair for fun, Aquarius will add sunshine to your dark, stormy winter days. But don’t match up Aquarians with Capricorns—they clash in the cosmos!
Aging with ATT-i-tude Platitude
The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter ~ Mark Twain. So true, Mr. Twain (Samuel Clemens, 1835-1910). And nothing so aging as a frown.
Turn that frown upside down, and let’s get on with the year!
Happy UN-Birthday JANUARY 39ers,
(Here’s lookin’ at you, kids – 39AHC Birthday 39er, Erin, Chris, Jodie and Joe!)
