Have you given any thought for what you might accomplish this year? Something that will cause you to feel like the world you greet & meet each day is better. When a warm feeling wells up inside and makes you think, today is a good day – a really good day.
For me, I try to figure out how to proceed each year with a word that will see me through when the chaos of life spins my small world out of control. I love the following quote:
“Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces together.”
― Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
My year of 2019 was one of ups & downs and filled with health-related stress. I’m glad it’s over. Thankfully, both hubby and me survived–we just look a little more ragged and worn.
Using my LISTS – word of the year for 2019 – throughout the year, helped tremendously. I did get some writing done, but not as much as I’d hoped. I did read — a lot!
This YEAR I’m starting out aligned with goals and a new type of planner. I know this can’t assure me success, but I am optimistic!
As me and hubby grow older, I know we’ll both have more complications to disrupt our lives. I am a person who truly believes I must persist and challenge myself if I want to accomplish more than just living day-to-day.
With that attitude, I stand at the bottom of the mountain, have tools at hand, gauge my possible progress, and start the climb.
I hope you’ll join me. Learn something new. Do something different. Enjoy life. Balance your 24-hour day with whatever tools will work for you.
