Happy New Year all!
I had the interesting experience of meeting with a group of complete strangers, and all going well! It wasn't a case of me being desparate for something to do on NYE: more just a set of coincidences.... abbreviated version of it is: a group http://www.meetup.com/empowermenthealing
which I'd joined a year and a half ago along with many other meetup groups but had never gone to any of their events, and the founder of the group happened to be on my facebook from back even much longer ago, although I'd never met him.... a couple of weeks ago I'd read a couple of his posts in his group, then a few days ago I discovered he also had an empowermenthealing facebook group and I posted on it, and at the same time he posted a NYE celebration event at his house on his facebook (just for friends, not connected with EH).... I RSVPd and went (having checked first that it wasn't invitation-only)..... a very good move as it turned out
Maybe people will post about goals/resolutions here.... I don't have any, maybe some day this will change for me, but as it is at the moment, there is no value for me in having a special time of year for setting goals (although, as I mentioned in this forum two years ago, the end of the year nonetheless is by its nature for me - holidays, everything winding down for Xmas etc.- is a time for taking stock in some ways).
Edit: actually, group founder had added me to his fb when I'd joined the meetup group online.... and we'd both forgotten!
