The Think Write Thursday topic for this week is to consider what it means to be at the halfway point of the year. Did you state some intentions for 2017? If so, check in on them and give us an update. If you didn’t state any intentions then maybe you could tell us what you think so far about 2017 or perhaps you’d like to set some intentions for the second half of the year. Whatever you decide, however you approach this topic, regale us with your words!
Guess who didn’t set any intentions for 2017?
Yep. That would be me. I mean, I did set a goal of reading 75 books but I don’t think that really counts as an intention. And really, I’m not going to set any for the second half of the year either. I have my summer bucket list and maybe in the fall I’ll create a fall bucket list. Because, really, bucket list sounds way more fun than intentions.
So that leaves me with what I think about 2017 so far. Hmmmm. Personally, it’s been great. I’ve got a side hustle, we’re getting a new grandbaby, we are celebrating 20 years of marital bliss (thank you all very much for the anniversary wishes yesterday) and day to day life is satisfying and happy. I’m reading and knitting, reflecting on peace as much as possible, meditating and journaling, and trying to live an authentic life. Actually, a quote from The Nix really struck me the other day and I think it’s applicable here:
Seeing ourselves clearly is the project of a lifetime.
So that’s what I’m doing. Seeing myself clearly as much as possible and working on the lifetime project of being me.
