I plan on posting once a week at least. I was inspired by a friend Ms. M who told me recently she's kept a diary for years and years and writes in it almost every day. What dedication!
She also told me she doesn't have a list of resolutions, but rather, frames each year in a theme. Her theme this year is "Glamour." So what is my theme for 2010? I have a number of sewing projects I want to complete, embroidery to do and learn, I want to do more creative writing, and put more time into friendships and family connections. So how to sum that up into a theme?
I think the closest I can come is "Creativity." I want to tap more into my creativity and try to work through my tendency toward lethargy. So wait, no, I think the theme is simply "Enjoy." Sometimes I get caught up in the "shoulds," as in "I should do this, I should do that." I've gotten better, but sometimes I treat life, cliche time, like a dress rehearsal instead of the real thing. I want to enjoy more moments, enjoy creative times, enjoy friendships and family.
These thoughts were made possible today by amazing coffee and my man's yummie egg-cheese-avocado-salsa breakfast thing.
