Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin.
Beginning makes the conditions perfect. - Alan Cohen
Happy New Year! I feel we can restart our lives at any time but there is something about a change in year that provides a good time to start. I am someone who does make resolutions and even re-evaluates them and checks on progress. Last year I wanted to work on awareness/mindfulness so one of my goals was to not have any library fines. I failed to the tune of $1.20 which my family does make fun of me for thinking of this as a failure. It's not about the money.
Anyway, my word of 2013 is "committed." Committed to:
-Using what I have instead of shopping,
-Living with intention,
-Being healthy and taking care of myself,
-Continuing to learn and challenge myself,
-Doing what I love,
-Forgiving and releasing,
-Reaching out and sharing,
-Gaining understanding and embracing acceptance,
-Being a good grandma,
Creativity Lesson 5
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” William Shakespeare
“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.” Proverbs xxii 1
Assignment #5 – What’s in a Name?
In this assignment, we will explore our names and what they mean to us and other people. You will need to take some time to think about what your name means to you. Did you have a nickname as a child? Did you secretly wish you were named…? What is the meaning of your name? Do you have a namesake?
Outing: Do something that you would never consider doing alone. Go to a movie. Eat out in a fancy restaurant, etc.
