Just Keep Swimming

It’s day three of 2014 and I am a Resolution Dynamo.  I’ve painted, cleaned, filed, exercised, and eaten like a champ.  But it’s only day three.  What happens when I get tired or lazy?  What will become of my resolutions when I lose motivation, or fear sets in? Will I have enough willpower to keep me afloat? The ‘diving in’ part is easy, now I’ve just got to keep swimming.

A Show of Hands: Snap

I’ve always thought of myself as an organizer and motivator with strong leadership skills.  Once, fifteen years ago, someone told me I was bossy—that I just snapped my fingers and expected people to jump. Those words were said in anger—one time—fifteen years ago—but they made me question who I was.   I know better than to let someone’s negative words define me, but still, those words have stayed with me.   I wish I could just snap my fingers and make them disappear.  I guess if I were truly bossy, I could.
