January Blues?

Spirit within Me

Ah well, tis January again, a new year starts, lots of folk seem to shift and move their thoughts and feelings around this time, new jobs, new ideas, new resolutions, how will it all go I wonder? Lots of folk I reckon are going to change something in their lives this year to better themselves and their own, its always a challenge. I remember when working I dreaded this time for a lot of reasons, my employer always looking to reduce costs at this time, it was like clockwork, no matter how good a year we had up to that time, it was always never quite good enough and so the belt-tightening routine came into play….and this remained a constant…every year. Its quite strange how this always comes into my mind at this time of the year. A series of actions, seen as a positive but almost always ending up as negative, a serious anomaly! Strange stuff eh? So, make your actions for this coming year positive-only-please, with no downside! Does this sort of thing happen in your workplace?

You will by now ( I hope!) have noticed the graphic? Click on it to find the reasons behind it, its all good and in the spirit of the new year I believe? Should you wish to use this graphic on your own blog/place then feel free to do so? I did it like this so you could add in a face underneath or something of relevance to you… If you want to do this but can`t or don`t know how then I`ll try it for you, just let me know?

So January never feels like the greatest of months to me, especially from the weather viewpoint, cos its horrendously grey and wet here! I got a bit of bad news too re. a memorial site I did for James at Respectance.com. It seems they had a server problem sometime in Nov. which ended up in them losing all the photos I had uploaded there so finding this out did`nt enamour me to the New Year too! Feel a bit gutted about it actually, so I asked them to take the rest down as without the pics it did`nt really mean a lot. I could have re-uploaded and done it all again but for some reason just could`nt bring myself to do it…. ah well, c`est la vie eh?

Edit : Just discovered that this post was written on “Blue Monday”, evidently our most depressing day of the year! How insane is that!? I`d never heard of the term being used to describe an actual day! (great song though….!) So is this a case for celebration?? Duh!

    Ahhh, too bad about the site, I’m sorry to hear the data was lost, Charles. I know how much it meant to you, and to James too, looking down.

    It is bleak here lately…horrendously grey and wet, also. Lots of cold weather, single digits, low double digits. It is supposed to continue through the weekend.

    Weird about Blue Monday.

    Take care, dear friend.


    Thanks lorri, yes, it was very disconcerting to lose those pics and to take it down. Sorry to hear your weather is as good as mine!

    I’m sorry too Charles. Losing things like that we’ve poured ourselves into is so disheartenng. I do hope you’re getting through it okay though. We perservere.

    Much love to you Charles. I wish only the best for you.

    Thanks so much Ruby, means a lot to me. Hope you too have managed to get some strength back? Strength & Love to you.

    Hi Charles,
    I too am sorry. I feel badly about it although it happenned after I left them. I wish that I could help you. If it is any condolence to you, then I know that Todd and Richard (Respectance co-owners) were completely gutted too.
    I hope you get some sun soon. Smile my friend.
    Hi Martha, thanks for stopping by, yes it was pretty upsetting though I am aware that this happens every now and then with servers! Trouble is, knowing this does`nt help much Thats the ball game though with something that basically, is free! So you can`t complain really when this happens. Yeah, I`m still smiling! Just want the greyness to be over though I`m already noticing more light creeping in to the evenings and mornings which is always a lovely sign!

    On the night I was born…Lord I swear the moon, was turned a firey red……….Words from brother Jimi. Brother I hope all is going well with you.
    Here, I’ve just been wrestling with Angels…..and I’ll be damned if they don’t win every time! You are a Brother dear to my heart and may God kick your ass to never let you forget that!

    your brother,


    God Bless you Reg! Nice to “see” you, hope you`re ok? I Love those words by Jimi!
