Like all gatherings, it’s not just about gathering together and enjoying each other’s company.
After you enjoyed the meal and exchanged all the stories you find appropriate for the occasion, there’s this question that lingers: Who is going to clean these all up?
If you gathered together in a home, it’s fortunate to have someone initiate the clean up. And like every other activities, there’s always this someone who stands up and says, “Let me do the cleanup.”
Sometimes, you don’t have to wait for anyone.
You’re not a kid anymore, always waiting for instruction.
As you start this new year, it’s time to restore the things within your control. Put into order what needs to be put into order. Settle what needs to be settled.
It’s time to take initiative.
