Welcome, new year!
I have quite a few big intentions for 2007. They mostly involve creating daily habits: daily walking, daily zazen, daily yoga, daily vitamins, daily reading, daily writing. I could add ‘daily drinking coffee’ and ‘daily watching the birds out my back window,’ but those are habits I already have pretty well established. I could also add: weekly cooking, weekly art-making, weekly yard-beautifying. To sum up: it is my intention in 2007 to create the life I want to be living.
I’m proud of myself for fending off another offer to return to teach in the spring (my beloved little honors class). I don’t know what kind of employment, if any, I’ll seek out this year, but this spring will mark the first time I’ve not taught college for two semesters in a row in 9 years. That seems like an important achievement for me.
One thing is certain, though. I’m definitely looking forward to getting this year on the road and seeing what 2007 has in store for me.
