The sun is setting on another year
I'm not feeling poetic or profound on this last day of 2008. I can name the feelings running around inside me: a bit of melancholy and tiredness, but there is also an elixir of calm, hope, and anticipation. Surely a mixed bag if ever there was one.
I guess the biggest question I have for myself today is: do you dare to dream big?
The scared part of me wants to stay in its illusion of safety. (If I don't think big, I won't fall big.) But the rest of me knows the soul-sucking quality of staying in my cave.
We are all born to be more than we think we are. I remind myself that I am no exception to the rule.
Lesley Riley has written a wonderful piece about being specific about your desires. It is easier to create the life we want when we can picture it clearly in our mind. So. I will dare to be clear, and specific, as I think about what I want in 2009.
A happy new year to all!
