Maybe it's the weather.
Perhaps the great company who just left. (sniff sniff)
Possibly it has to do with wonderful friendships picking up where they left off before Christmas.
Feasibly it is the sight of the bright reminding us that spring, while months away, is closer than we realize.
Perchance it is simply the fact that we are all up on our sleep.
Credibly it's the start of 2011. The turn of a new page, a new book from the shelf of our life. A clean slate, new chapter, fresh outlook.
This new year is starting out well with an extra dose of hope, faith, confidence in things to come. It could be the after effects of all. that. holiday. caffeine.
Personally - very biased - I believe it to be anticipation, joy, contentment, bold determination to keep the chin up, the lips curved in a smile-like-formation, and dauntless belief that this year holds great things.
It has started well my friends.
Very, very well indeed.
