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.
