Go Time!

January. Where were you? What were you doing? What was the major story in your life six months ago? Me? I was shoulder deep in boxes. Literally. We were selling one house, and buying another. I was also, two weeks into my New Year's resolutions. Sort of. Thing is, I no longer make New Year's resolutions.
More like, silent pacts with myself.   I decided, it's best if I take, a broader, less specific approach. Example: instead for saying, "I'll travel the US this year," I adopt a an attitude of adventure.  I might drive to the next county, or state. Or even go somewhere in town, I've never been. You get the idea. It's not a list of things to do. It's a way to be. It's a theme for the year, an attitude really. Early January, a friend got me thinking about a word to summarize my coming year. The word that came to me was go. Go try. Go do. Go be. Go conquer. Go live. Just go! It was a call action. I was inspired. And then I wasn't. By March, my   attitude of action had fizzled. Life is busy. I got distracted.
June finds me hanging on to this attitude of action with renewed gusto. I'm still here. I'm still trying. There is still time. "Go time." God willing, in six months, we'll celebrate another year. What did you resolve to do, or don't, this year? Time is life's truest currency. How do you plan to spend the next six months of it?
