there are a lot of things that i might tell you are not my spiritual gift. today alone, i told bailey and dana two things: removing adhesive and reading analog clocks. a third thing that’s not my spiritual gift is goal-setting.
y’all. when i first looked through them, i was pretty overwhelmed. there are a lot of pages that ask you to cast your vision for the new year and evaluate the past year and i thought, this is a lot but also it is necessary because this year was ridiculous and i can’t do this again.
and then i spent three hours in bailey’s classroom working on them, sitting across from dana, who was doing the same thing, while bailey worked on school stuff, and i realized, yes this is a lot but also it’s not too much because i was thinking about some of these things anyway and all this really is, is a place for me to write these things down and actually put words to previously undefined concepts.
given that this year was chaotic and messy – and especially since a lot of that resulted from decisions within my control – i pretty much want to revamp nearly every part of my life. what’s really nice about the powersheets is that i can distill this into concrete and manageable steps, so i don’t feel crazy thinking about all the things i would like to change.
one of my goals for the year is to write more consistently, because i’m a better person when i do. but one of the things i have to ask of you, then, is to bear with me as i re-learn what it’s like to write for and in this space. it’s been a long time since i wrote here consistently and without prompts.
are you using powersheets this year? what are some of your goals for 2017?
