Thinking

We wrap up the year by meeting with friends and family.
We gather at long tables, around drinks and food, congregate in people's homes.
Too often these are places we don't normally frequent throughout the year.
Too often we don't keep up with these people.  
Too often these are our very own family members, friends we used to know, yet we now find ourselves grasping for words, questions to ask, topics that will hopefully spark some conversation.
We get wrapped up in jobs, our careers...
We try and better ourselves,
find Success,
yearn for Glory,
desire more Money,
come up with Reasons...
We think, at the end of the day, that we should be doing more, that
We could have done this differently,
We could have worded that a different way,
We should have worn the red tie today instead of the blue one,
We shouldn't have said that... what were we thinking?

What are we thinking?
