only when you look into your heart.
She who looks outside - dreams.
She looks inside - awakens.
- Carl Jung
I do my fair share of both.
2010 is going to be a year of dreaming and awakening for me. These are the plans I have outlined for myself for the next year:
In 2010 I resolve to.....
1. Run a 5k in May and a 10k in October;
2. Consistently maintain my two journals (food and exercise journal & visual journal)
3. Re-evaluate the "things" in my life for their usefulness, value (not monetary) and purpose - and handle them accordingly; in anticipation of a huge life change;
4. Read the Bible Carol gave me - cover to cover in one year.
While these four goals appear short and succinct - the result of my adherence to them will be far reaching as within them exists many layers of learning and growing.
Now that I have gone to a three column blog - I am thinking I will dedicate that extra column to my health and fitness (spiritual, emotional and physical) journey. I like recording my progress as it makes me accountabe to myself on a more serious level. I found that while I was recording my P90X progress every day - it really made a difference in my level of dedication.
Every time I make New Year's Resolutions, it brings to mind a saying my mom used to tell me when I'd say, "mom, I'll do it later...." she would say, "The best laid plans of mice and men, often go awry..."
Here's the actual poem that sentiment was taken from....
But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain;
The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft agley,
And lea'e us nought but grief an' pain
For promised joy!
- Scottsman, Robert Burns
Accountability to MYSELF - is what keeps me going. For the best laid plans most often DO go awry.
My plans - they're NOT going anywhere.
Now Let's Get This Party Started!
TOMORROW: Texture, texture and more texture. I've been playing with all kinds of texture during the last week. I'll post my pictures tomorrow.
