Determined to Do 2016 Differently

Sun rising over the Old Bahia Honda Bridge January 1, 2016

I could have started my blogging year on January 1, listing resolutions, describing dreams, or selecting word for the year. Except, I’ve already done that, over and over, and I want 2016 to be different. I want BIGGER, brighter, and bolder. Even with clear awareness that life is about the journey, not a destination, I want to get where I’ve been going, be who I’ve been becoming, revel in achievement. When I’ve enjoyed enough revelry, I’ll move on.

Old 7 Mile Bridge, Florida Keys

A few times a year, I see one of my favorite trees on the planet. It sprouted on a far-from-land stretch of the Old 7 Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys. I suspect that thousands of seeds have been deposited on that bridge by winds and birds, but this one grew. This one, is my teacher.

A Different Year

Yesterday, I discovered, and today, I joined, the Twitter Monthly Writing Challenge to write 500 words per day. It’s time to finish writing my books.

In the fall of 2015, I began noticing the miracles of the natural world. Haikus flowed and I liked writing them. More #iSeeBeauty coming in 2016, maybe with new inspiration from ronovan writes.

In October 2015, I started indoor rock climbing with my son, and was thrilled to discover that I love it. Climbing on.

In years past, I would have written a dozen more “I wants” and “I wills,” but 2016 is different, so I’m letting the above be enough.

What are your plans for 2016? What will you do, differently?

    Oh, you KNOW I can relate, Sister. And OH! how I love this line: “Even with clear awareness that life is about the journey, not a destination, I want to get where I’ve been going, be who I’ve been becoming, revel in achievement. When I’ve enjoyed enough revelry, I’ll move on.” I’ll give a resounding ME TOO to that!

    And I do love when you write about that tree ~ it is a magical tree. I could see a children’s story about it. Or an adult children’s story.

    I want BIGGER, BRIGHTER, DIFFERENT too. Will see how that unfolds. Love you, Sister. ♥

    Absolutely nothing. My new years resolution includes not needing to change a thing. Remembering that I am fine as I am.
