I decided to check out for the month of January. With the surgery and all, I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to do most of the things that I am used to do. Although I am still on the recovery path and not able to do a whole heck of a lot, I am ready to come up with my clean start!
I do not like the word resolutions. If I resolve to do something, it makes me think that I have been doing things wrong. I have chosen the word ambition. That way, I can take who I am and I can aspire to become someone better. Am I a nerd, absolutely. It works for me though!
I have chosen a motto for the year. This one hit me like a brick. When I was checking my email the other day, I saw one of my automatic messages from Martha Stewart. The subject was “Creating Calm.” I was very intrigued by the title and had never thought about the fact that we actually can create the calm around us. So, for this year, my ambition is going to try to “Create Calm” around me. I am excited about this and hope that I can acheive it.
(For all of you who are dying to know what Martha Stewart was talking about, it was about how to accent an entry way with a sofa table. I know, I don’t think that match but, then again, I am not the all mighty Martha!)
