“We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.” ~Ellen Goodman
Funny how, after January 1st (at least around here) we tend to think less about the potential that is waiting for us in January. In these short cold days we not only have the potential to clear out accumulated “stuff” in our homes but in our lives as well.
Is there a project you’ve been thinking of starting, or a painting you thought of creating? Perhaps beginning to keep a journal or learn something new? When it is too cold and blustery to go out (or for my friends in the southern hemisphere…too HOT to go out) you can carve out a parcel of time and give it to YOURSELF…and in that way you can enrich the lives of others. Time to plan, learn, dream…time to grow. Like the plants that lie in wait under the winter snow. No excuses – you are as important as anyone else that you care for. Do you believe it?
Just do it!
