Happy New Year

Last year at this time I began my blog site.  I stated I would be writing a blog every two weeks.  I wrote a total of four last year.  Twenty short of my goal!  Knowing I had set a goal and having not come anywhere close to reaching it, made me want to 1) deny it was a goal, and 2) never attempt reaching it.  Simply put I wanted to forget about it and not touch it again.  I had a myriad of excuses as to why, over the year, I could not write – too busy, not enough to say, someone else had probably already said it better, technical difficulty uploading it to my site etc. 

Here I sit.  It is a new year.  Instead of doing what I “wanted” to do, I’m encouraging myself to 1) face the reality of the situation, 2) sit in it and experience the disappointment of not reaching a goal 3) see my excuses for what they are – “faces of resistance” and 4) make a conscious choice to do something different. Here’s to setting new goals or picking up old ones.  Here’s to talking one step at a time towards the story we want to live today.
