So a New Year dawns and it seems that there are many things from 2016 that have not been completed yet. January 2, 2017 and I finally feel like cleaning up my office and setting some new intentions for the year and in so doing, I have run across a few things that I have found interesting.
SOME QUOTES TO THINK ABOUT:
Everyone has an answer but what’s the question?
When we let go of doing and embrace being, we open a direct channel to inspiration.
A “writer” is a technical expert and an “author” is a creative force.
Put your mouth where your money is.
Why take one step in the direction of our dreams when we can become what we dream of right now?
Inspiration is that deep part of ourselves that emerges when we give ourselves permission to live our dreams.
Good intentions are not a substitute for good actions.
Change your mind – change your reality.
SOME QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
Is losing weight a negative intention?
What the hell is a “GIF” and a “meme?”
Do process and organization stifle creativity?
Is it possible to make someone else happy if you are not happy yourself?
How do I define “retirement?”
Why are some people so incredibly and constantly generous while others have no concept of generosity?
I have partial answers to some of these questions while others remain a mystery.
ONE OF MY DUMBER MOMENTS:
I could not, for the life of me, figure out the GPS system in our new vehicle – the least intuitive process I have ever encountered. I had hands-on advice from 3 of my favourite people who, me included, had lots of experience with GPS – all to no avail.
ONE OF MY SMARTER MOMENTS:
I threw 3 of my favourite people out of the vehicle in a small BC town on the Trans Canada Highway while I read the instruction manual (again) and figured out how to program the GPS. Sheesh – instruction manuals – who knew?
Well, I’ve cleaned up, thrown out and actually used some of the sticky notes that have been hanging around my desk and yes, there are still more. I’ve begun my New Year’s intentions by starting a Word document with them. I’m prepared for work tomorrow and complained about the additional snow and cold temperatures (OK, Christmas has come and gone – bring on the beach).
AN INTENTION OR TWO:
Write and think more about what it means to be a Baby Boomer
Put into print my Legacy Bio series – title to be confirmed.
Spend more time contemplating my navel – OK, so I need to lose (there’s that negative word) a few pounds in order to see it.
And yes, that’s navel not novel.
To each and everyone of you, I wish good health, joy and many new adventures for the year 2017.
