Explore. Dream. Discover….

Posted on

I have been asking myself what I am all about lately.

I mean the really thought-provoking, deep and interpersonal look-inside-your soul kind of “about.”

I had a friend on Facebook throw out the question this past week, “What did you learn in 2013?”

I am sad to say that I have yet to come up with an answer.

I know I learned “stuff,” like how to write a blog post and post html-affiliate links, etc., but I haven’t come up with the deep, meaningful, life-changing new learned thing.  I know it doesn’t have to be that.  I KNOW.  But it’s there.  I HAD TO LEARN SOMETHING LAST YEAR, right?

Explore.  Dream.  Discover.

There’s a page on this blog called “About Me.”  It gives an overview of me, and asks that if you want to know more, check out my first post.  Ya, ya, ya, but what I am about?  Really?

I know what I wish I was about.  I know what I dream I could be about.  Dreaming & Discovering

When I thought of writing this post, it started out being about dreaming about the future.  Looking up a “dream quote” on the internet, I chose one that was highly rated and meant something to me.  The photo attached to the quote is a picture I took of a ground squirrel, who literally looked like he was day-dreaming while sitting on a post on a heavily used walkway overlooking a piece of the California coast.  He was sitting there, not afraid, not making any noises, not trying to be noticed in any way.  It seems silly, but it was like the squirrel was dreaming.  (I know you might be smiling right about now, but go with me on it.)

I AM sitting at a computer staring at a photo of a squirrel on a post overlooking the coast, not trying to be noticed, not afraid, not making any noises (except the obvious typing,) trying to explore my inner self.  Dreaming of what this blog could be and what I can do next.  I need to discover my priorities, even now!

Seriously, the analogies could be endless.

That’s what I’m thinking right now.  I hope it got you thinking too.


The Word of the Year is….

I am going to be pro-active in 2014I’ve been putting quite a bit of thought into my new year’s resolution, what I’d like to refer to as my one goal.

I posted yesterday, December 31, 2013, that this year, I am going to be more pro-active.

Google defines pro-active as an adjective, thus an action word, (of a person, policy, or action) creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened.

I like control.

There is SO MUCH I CAN CONTROL!

And then there’s the stuff I can’t.  I get that.  That’s why with this post I am also including my chosen new year’s verse, Proverbs 16:3 – Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3This is what I’m doing.  This is what I challenge you to think about – What is your one-word for 2014?
