|Albert Einstein in fuzzy slippers...|
It's been a week of cold blue skies since my last confession.
My new year, which started out as scattered and confused, has become more focused. I'm feeling better about where I'm going, what I'm working on, and my upcoming year.
So let's get going... To the confessional--
I confess I like to have some sort of plan.
I have given up to really believing that I'm in charge, but I like to know as our planet spins and continues its loop around this beautiful universe, I have something to do, something to work on.
I confess I keep a TO DO list on my desk that I write before bed so I know what the plan is the next day. Without this list, I end up wandering the house aimlessly unsure of what I'm supposed to be doing. My morning head is always cloudy, and where some people get their best thoughts in the morning, I do not.
My best thoughts come once I'm in the shower (as did Einstein's...though I am no Albert Einstein).
I confess I have a spoon I got at the Goodwill that looks like no other spoon in the drawer. It's small, with a black handle and for some reason, I just see it as the most perfect spoon in the world.
When I have my morning cereal with this spoon I feel more relaxed, like I'm camping and this is my camping spoon. It's the weirdest thing, but I have deep feelings for this spoon.
I confess I also love slippers and feel that the secret to a good life is - a full night's sleep, a warm house, good food, time for what you love, & slippers.
I confess this year one of my focuses is get me out of my comfort zone. I like it here way too much for my own good. I know I miss out on things because it's easier just to stay in the comfort zone than to stretch myself, but I don't want to be shrub all my life, I want to stretch tree-style and reach out for something more.
