Okay brand new year – not resolutions, but removing from my vocabulary the word SHOULD and replacing it with the word COULD. Should implies obligation, could implies choice. In fact I wrote the word ‘should’ on a piece of paper and threw it in the fire! Hooray for me! I’m branding 2010 the YEAR OF COULD. I could do a lot of things.
- take a photography class
- sell a piece of art
- run a half marathon
- sew a quilt for the bed (a quilt, as in one completed quilt)
- raise some meat chickens (for this I will need fearlessness, but I have a willing partner in Everett, the middle boy.)
- keep the list short and attainable
How about you? Do you find a new year a mixture of hope and fear? I do, but there can be no courage without fear. So, I’m flinging myself off the cliff in hopes that my wings will be there when I need them.
