I always seem to find myself focusing on something, a theme or vision, every time the new year comes around. Maybe because my birthday happens at the same time. Maybe because I visit with family and exchange cards and gifts with people I don't see nearly enough. Maybe because I have some kind of hope that things can get better, and maybe some day I won't have to feel so defensive all the time, and might actually let my walls down.
Maybe I just want more.
I think it's healthy to want more. Not necessarily stuff, but goals, dreams, wishes, hope... It's all pretty open ended.
Last year I kept coming back to "authentic"... real people, real food, real relationships... authentic, not fake. I think I did pretty good.
A few years ago, the Prayer of Jabez was a big deal. I was focused on expanding my territory, impacting others positively, broadening my sphere of influence.
This year, it's Quality.
Quality workout efforts. - No half-assed "just to get it done"
My standards are high.
I've asked my facebook and twitter connections for feedback on what they think of when they see the word "Quality". It can be a thing, a feeling, a perception, whatever they want it to be. If you read this and we aren't connected "IRL", comment here.
Hold your standards high,
Happy 2015 to you! I can't wait to see what's ahead for each one of us.
