My sister, creator of StoneLeaf & Co., has been rearranging stuff for a long time. Each necessary shift has positively impacted her and her outlook. She wrote yesterday about how she has been on a journey searching for a purpose and voice for her writing. She has accepted that her current story to tell is about our mother and the uncomfortable journey of Alzheimer’s. I respect my sister’s strength to accept her current role.
I am therefore inspired to accept opportunities for growth as 2015 begins. I don’t know what will need to be rearranged first, but I suspect it will be something mundane: hanging up clothes, painting the edges of the walls in my kitchen, clearing out all the bins I have collected in 12 years of teaching, finishing a book, redistributing my fat to muscle ratio, finding more time to spend with loved ones, etc.
I will probably rearrange some furniture sooner or later too.
I do know one thing. I am not good at keeping “new year’s resolutions.” So, this year, I am going to trust God first. Then, I am going to set 24-hour goals and see what happens as stuff gets rearranged. I hope the result is a better me.
