'We will open the book. It's pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." -Edith Lovejoy Pierce
Okay, so New Year's Day was a week ago. I'm a week late, but whatever, I'm here now. And we won't even talk about how long it has been since I've posted/written a blog. I'm choking on all the dust in this place! Again, whatever, I'm here now. I don't know if my blogging will be any different than in the past: stopping, starting, creating new blogs only to have them wither away in a few months, weeks, we will see. After all, it is a new year, complete with a new moon. It is time for new adventures, new goals, new fears, new challenges and new words to put on the blank pages.
I found a word find exercise where the first three words you saw were yours for the new year. I searched and the first one that immediately popped up was YOU. Interesting, since I have been so looking forward to this day (the day everyone returned to school leaving me free to meditate, workout, and write in peace or more correctly, without any one around to see me. Why I feel the need to hide (especially from my family) is definitely something to ponder in the new year...and get the hell over!
The second word that jumped out at me, and this one took awhile to find was INTELLIGENCE. Since I don't consider myself very smart, almost ditzy to a fault, this word will also be interesting to discover over the next year.
The third word didn't shock me: Love Definitely a loaded worded for sure. I'm actually a little afraid to delve too deeply into this word. Too afraid to find what is at the bottom and root of this four letter for me.
My own word of the year is PUSH. Push through the fear. Push myself and harder than I believe I can go. Push onward to he next great thing...it is out there...waiting.
