New Year’s Revelations

Wow.  Have I been remiss or what?

I’m playing the “Snow Week” card; some folk I know took the week off work because of the crazy-ass snow we’ve had piled on us.

If they can use that excuse, well so can I.

At least for one week.

Any longer than that and my internal You Are A Bad Person For Being So Neglectful gauge goes off the chart.

For the first post of the year, I’d like to share my New Year’s Revelations.

That’s right. Revelations.

Resolutions are so depressing. They just serve to remind us of how imperfect we think we are.

Inspired by a conversation with my lovely holiday hostess (thank you Tzaddi) I decided that instead of making a list of resolutions that I need/want/should do, this year I would make a list of things I can do.  Personal revelations.

Here’s what I’ve got so far:

1. I possess an insane attention to detail.
2. I strive for perfection in everything I do.
3. I sew like nobody’s business.
4. My drawing skills are pretty decent.
5. I have an awesome studio.
6. I cook a meal better than most restaurants.
7. I write a mean post, poem, prose, etc.
8. I do a pigeon impression that is unsurpassed.

What’s your list look like?

    A pigeon impression, eh? Hmm…

    You also make really awesome spiced nuts.

    You have a wicked sense of humour.

    I read a neat thing about goal words versus resolutions:

    I think my 4 words are
    Balance – e.g. take time to have fun and do important non-work things.
    Zen – live more in the moment.
    Growth – for me, my business, my relationships.
    Joy – cultivate it through all the above.

    Maybe not the revelation you were looking for but that’s what’s on my mind about the subject 🙂
