I'm one of those people (read: hoarders) who saves my OCD-laced planners from years gone by. Why? Well, part of me thinks it's a hoot to go back and read some random reminder of spending the night with Haley or college finals or job interviews. The other part of me is simply helping out the poor staffer from E! True Hollywood Story who researches my life should I ever get my 15 minutes of fame.
I purchased my spanking new 2011 planner and literally COULD NOT WAIT to transfer my info and kiss 2010 goodbye and good riddance!
The past year has been the hardest of my entire life and I seriously thought about having some type of tribal burning of my 2010 planner as a cleansing a la the 'ex boyfriend bonfire' on Friends. Give last year the proverbial finger. Instead I decided to keep it with the others. A testament to what I made it through...and lived.
So I sat down with my new planner and marveled at the crisp pages. 365 new chances. 12 months of possibilities. 4 seasons of promise.
