Out with the old, in with the new. 2013…

The old tree moves out and makes room for new growth

In looking up the definition of  “resolved” I found this:

1. firm in purpose or intent; determined.


RESOLVED:  I am determined to be kinder to myself and others around me.

This may not seem like a big deal to you, but, to this girl it’s HUGE.

Me:  I’ve always been tough on myself, or so I hear.   I need to work on that, HARD.

Others:  I come off as obstinate and opinionated. I’ve got a very bad delivery.  That needs work, too. 🙂

I can do this!

Passing through the convenience store parking lot, I spotted these birds huddled together. Usually I see scads of them lined up on phone or electrical wires. I’m sure you have, too. I wonder why they all hang together on the same strand with maybe one rebel that sits off on his own. But for the most part, they stick together. This was a little different. I don’t know if I ever saw this many perusing a parking lot from the same bushy perch.

2013 – a year of usual, a year of being more observant, a year of huddling with friends and family and making the best of life. 2013 – a year of being less rebellious, less arbitrary, and more in tune, more present.
