I know, awe inspiring, isn't it?! (insert sarcasm)
I am very tired, and my mood is slightly, well, sarcastic, so I probably shouldn't undertake anything life-changing tonight, but I can't skip to post number 201...
I guess we will start with the past, since it is already over, and is easiest - at least in theory. What is past? For me - birth, and rebirth-
the addition of several sisters (and now several brothers too).
The first seven (and a half) years of marriage,
and the two beautiful boys we have been gifted with in that time.
The past has held a lot, and I have enjoyed it.
But now, it is NOW. And today I need to focus on today. December 12, 2008... beginning exactly this minute, actually. (I think that means I should go to bed...)
First, a quick look at the future. I will be 30 in a little more than five months. That seems like such a big deal right this minute. For some reason, 30 seems so huge. And because it seems so huge, I am trying to prepare myself for it. Another blog I read, Everyone has a story to tell, is planning for it this year too. I liked her idea. It is called Project 365. The goal is to take a photo every day - kind of like a journal of life. To make yourself think outside your normal "box". Look around and see things differently.
I am going to add to the project a little. I am going to try to upload a picture onto here every week. I would say every day - but I know that is an unrealistic goal. So, I am going to try to set a goal that is attainable.
Starting in 2009, I am going to make a goal to take a picture every day. Sometimes, it will just be my kids. Sometimes it will just be my house. But I am going to try to take pictures of the sunset, and caterpillars, art, things that I am learning.
(This is a picture of art I took last month. Isn't everyone proud of me!)
I don't want to be stagnant. I want to grow.
