The Turning



With this year dimming to yet another close, do you know what direction you're traveling? Do you know what you stand for?

this time of the year offers time and space for rest, introspection, consideration and re-consideration.
the unfortunate and unexpected incident of October has got me thinking about my ways and future.
have a Merry Christmas, Jason, Aine and kids.

I've been thinking about the same thing, Jason. Last week, I wrote a list of ten principles for my life, and I carry it with me in my purse. I wrote the statements in the affirmative and first person, present tense, as in, "I do...," to remind myself that these are my actions, not just my beliefs. It might sound silly, but it's my form of self-talk.

I stand up for myself and those too weak and I hope I am heading forward :)

Merry Christmas.

the walking man said...

Aye. Yes I do.

Shakespeare said...

I like Karen's idea. I've been so busy packing that I haven't mentally shaped what my plans are in Georgia, once the move has been made.

Perhaps I can use the time between today (when all packing ends) and the New Year. Then my life will no longer be in limbo, but will move with purpose. Before it does, I need to work on that purpose far more, so that I set my feet aright.

I hope I'm going forward. I hope that the work I have been doing will finally pay off. I think I'm getting closer to my goals. I just have to keep going.

Aine said...

Yes, I do. And I find it's becoming more clear with each passing year.

Do you?
:)

Szelsofa, Karen, Tab, Walking Man, Shakespeare, Meghan, Aine,

A lot of great retrospection here. I agree that this time of year lends itself to reflection. For myself, I know the minutiae of my direction, but have become less sure of what I stand for.

I think I do, though your direct questions now make me wonder...

Vesper, I agree. The answer is not so easy when you pose it so directly. The ambiguity falls away.
