that long awaited word of the year that's been floating around... just out of reach. I made lists and pondered and still was undecided. Then it came to me, and I felt that it was right. "Renew." I'm ready for that.
I'm ready to restore my physical self into a healthier state of existence. To make like new. To refresh. To renew.
I'm ready to make extensive changes to the way I work and live. To work more efficiently as a teacher and get home at a more reasonable hour and work more effectively in my home. Doing what needs to be done and not putting things off until later. To renew.
I'm ready to focus my efforts on a few projects I have in mind. To begin again. Resume. Renew.
When I think of the word "renew," I think of vitality and spirit. To look at the world in new ways, to consider new possibilities, to say yes to new opportunities. It's going to take some effort... all this renewing I plan on doing. But I'm ready to say good-bye to "can't" and actually do something to make a difference this year.
