I imagine most people have felt this way at some point in their lives, and more than a few are starting the new year thinking it.
That like this hoover shop I saw in Cambridge, which made me smile -
They're feeling like the odd one out.
Maybe they've moved to a new town, city, county or country. Maybe they haven't moved at all, but have taken a new job, or seen a shake up in their lifestyle.
Whichever and whatever, it can be an unsettling feeling.
Which leaves a wondering what the future will bring, and whether they will ever fit in and be taken to the heart of their new community.
I know it's odd (but very me) - I felt rather sorry for this guitar. It looked forlorn and lonely.
Thinking back on my own experiences of life, when I first joined the BBC I felt rather lonely and wondered if I would ever fit in.
And likewise when my first book came out, ten years ago this year, whether I could ever be a part of the publishing world.
But both went well in the end. With time, patience, and a bit of effort.
So if you ever feel you're an electric guitar in the land of hoovers (and you don't get to write that very often), remember -
You might not be so strictly practical in terms of what you can do in life.
But you sure can bring a huge amount of happiness to an awful lot of people.
