2010 has been washed away

Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m a home-body.

It’s not unusual to find me relaxing at home on New Year’s Eve, and that’s where I was this 31 December.

I decided, however, that I wanted to do something different to ring in the New Year besides just watching a movie or surfing the web.

So at about 11:50pm on 31 December, I started the shower.

While the water was getting hot, I opened the package with the new pajamas my mother sent me for Christmas, and I opened the new pack of underwear that I’d purchased about a week before New Year’s Eve.

When the water was just the right temperature, I got in and washed from the crown of my head to the heels of my feet.

When I was done with my shower, it was 01 January 2011.

A newly cleaned me started a new year in new pajamas and new underwear.

I said my first prayer for 2011 and took my first rest of the new year.

I’m thankful for a new and clean beginning.

  1. Sounds like a very relaxing way to bring in the new year. Not to mention, very symbolic… Hope this is the start of a great year for you!

    1. With people like you in my life, it can’t help but be a great year. I value you, and I love you. Thanks for always supporting my efforts.

  2. We should all take the mentality that we refuse to enter a new year wearing the same thing from the last year. Preparing for the new, washing away what has accumulated, then replacing it with things we choose. Awesome, Faydra! Happy NewYear 2011:)

  3. What a symbolic way to start the new year. We should all wash away the grime that held us down or held us back from last year and start the new year afresh.

    Happy New Year, Faydra!

  4. Faydra,
    Apparently, great minds think alike because I also started a new personal blog this year and I’m using the exact same theme! I wish you all the best with your new blog. I need to get back to you about getting my profile on your social media blog. 😉

    1. Haha. You’re always trying to be like me. 😀 I’ll be here when you’re ready for your profile, sis! Thanks for checking out my new blog.
