“What if you could be anything, or anybody, you chose to be? Think about it. What would you choose to be?” … Nido Qubein
I kind of like the end of the year… it gives a chance to look back and see what was … and to look forward and imagine what might become. I’m not just talking about “resolutions” here but about the dreams that became a part of my life, the ones that slipped away and the ones that I recognized really belonged to someone else’s path. I figured out a long time ago that resolutions tend to be “Shoulds” in disguise.
In this moment … at this time … I am intending … I am dreaming … and I am looking forward … because realistically … that’s the only direction that we can travel anyway! (Unless you happen to be Dr. Who and you have a T.A.R.D.I.S. time-machine stored in your garage … in which case you should definitely contact me.) I am dreaming of a healthy year, filled with fun, love, good friends and published, uplifting and helpful books. My plans loosely include regular time in the local pool to help strengthen my leg … gentle yoga classes to stretch said leg … lots of writing … some painting and photography … co–creating and rebuilding my Senior’s Home Care business with Life … and last but not least finding my soul’s partner … not too shabby for someone who doesn’t believe in “resolutions”!
During the last three years, in the midst of medical crisis after medical crisis I’ve had a lot of time to ponder “what would (I) choose to be if (I) could be anything, or anybody” whom I chose to be. What I’ve decided is that first and foremost … I choose to be the best person whom I can be … more loving … more capital “U” understanding … a whole lot less judgmental: of both myself and others … a lot better listener: to those around me; to me and to Life (thus leading to better Understanding!). Faithful Fran and Sunshine Sue assure me that better Life-listening skills will lead me to my next set of desires … that of assisting others to rediscover and realize their own dreams … to share insights, inspiration and hope with those whose medical journeys are taking them down similar roads to the ones which I travelled … and to simply be in the right place at the right time to share Life with life. So … got to run … Life and I are holding a planning session with Fran, Sue and Perky Polly … and it looks to be an amazing one!
